Unpeeled Apple Cake, Made in One Bowl

Carol Freeman's "Boozies Apple Cake"

In a large bowl put 2 eggs, 1/4 cup white sugar, 2 cups brown sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1/2 cup neutral oil and 1/4 cup of either apple or orange juice, or water. Mix well.
Add 4 cups of unpeeled apple in 1/2 inch cubes and 1 cup of raisins or toasted walnuts. Mix well.
Sift into the bowl 2 cups of flour, 2 teaspoons of baking soda, 3/4 teaspoon of salt and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon. Mix lightly.
Put into a 9 by 13 inch pan, either greased or lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 45 minutes and test for doneness by tapping the top of the cake. Bake for as long as 60 minutes total, but do not over bake. The cake will be moist. It has a lovely light texture and keeps well.
