It’s the time of the year for apples and this is one of my favorite fall cake recipes. If you like apples and butterscotch, you will love this apple cake! Perfect to take to any gathering as most people love apples.

1 1/2 cups oil (I use canola)
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 eggs
3 cups self-rising flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
3 cups apples, peeled and grated or in small chunks (I grate them on a hand grater  and I have used all kinds of apples)
1 cup walnut pieces (could use pecans)
1 cup butterscotch chips    
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.   Spray bundt pan or 9 x 13 cake pan with non-stick cooking spray.  Cream oil, sugar, eggs together.  Blend in flour, cinnamon, vanilla, and nutmeg.  Stir in apples, nuts, and butterscotch chips.   Bake 1 hour or until done.    This cake is good without frosting but can add the recipe below for Butterscotch Icing.
Butterscotch Icing or Frosting   
1 cup butterscotch chips

2 tablespoons butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups confectionery sugar
