3 eggs
2 c sugar
1 c cooking oil
2 c all-purpose flour
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 c chopped walnuts
4 c thinly sliced pared tart apples, 5 med.

2 3-oz pkgs cream cheese, softened
1/4 c melted butter
2 c powdered sugar
1 tsp lemon juice
Preparation:Beat eggs with a mixer until thick and light. Combine sugar and oil; pour into eggs with mixer on medium speed. Stir together flour, cinnamon, soda and salt; add to egg mixture with vanilla; beat to mix. Stir in walnuts.

Spread apples in a buttered 13x9x2 inch pan. (Captain Whidbey's Inn uses a bundt type pan, so did I and I like the presentation better.) Pour batter over apples, spreading to cover. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 1 hour. Remove from oven and cool.

To make the icing, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Beat in butter; then beat in powdered sugar and lemon juice. Spread over cooled cake. Refrigerate. Makes 12 to 15 servings.
Notes:From The Captain Whidbey Inn - Coupeville, WA

Captain Whidbey's Inn uses a carmel drizzel with a garnish of very thinly sliced tart green apple slices in a pretty little arrangement just off to the side held in place by the carmel drizzel on the plate.
