Apple Rolls


4 cups peeled, cored, and diced apples
1 cup chopped nuts
1 cup white sugar
3 cups bread flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice or ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 eggs, beaten


In a medium-size bowl, stir together the apples, nuts, and sugar. Let them stand for 1 hour, stirring often. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Grease three 12-ounce coffee cans.

In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, soda, salt, and spices. Add the apple mixture and stir well. Then add the oil, vanilla, and eggs and mix well.

Divide the batter among the prepared cans. Cover with a double thickness of foil folded so that it comes down over the sides of the cans at least 2 inches. Bake for 1 hour. Let the cans cool on a wire rack for about 10 minutes before turning the rolls out of the cans to finish cooling. To serve, slice 1 inch thick.
