    Apple Honeycake - It's not an original recipes, but I don't know where it's from. It's good, though! Freezes well.

    Beat together one cup sugar, 1/2 cup honey, and 3 eggs. Add 2 cups flour, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp baking powder. Slice two medium apples, any kind, and add to mixture. (My mom teaches preschool and one of the stay at home dads likes to experiment with different kinds of apples and say each one has a specific taste; he liked a tart apple best. I personally prefer Rome or Gala or Courtland however in pies, cooking and baking.) Add 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp vanilla, and 2/3 cup oil. Bake in 9 by 13 pan for 40 minutes at 350 def
