  • Beat oil and eggs in a mixing bowl with an electric mixer until creamy. Add sugar and vanilla; beat well.

  • Stir together flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Slowly add flour mixture to egg mixture; mix until combined. The batter will be very thick. Fold in apples by hand using a wooden spoon. Spread batter into the prepared pan.
