German Apple Cake

I found my recipe at:

Cake ingredients:
2 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil (I used 1/2 cup canola oil and 1/2 cup applesauce)
2 cups white sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 cups apples - peeled, cored, and diced
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (I omitted these)

Frosting ingredients:
2 (3 oz) packages cream cheese (I used the neufchatel cheese - less fat)
3 Tblsp butter, softened
1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 9 x 13 inch pan. In a medium bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.

2. In a large bowl, combine eggs, oil, and sugar. Beat until foamy. Add flour mixture and beat well. Add vanilla and stir in chopped apples and walnuts. Pour into greased 9 x 13 inch pan.

3. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. Allow cake to cool, then spread with cream cheese frosting.

4. To make the frosting: In a medium bowl combine cream cheese, softened butter, confectioners sugar, and vanilla. Beat until smooth, then spread on cake.
