Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 13 x 9-inch baking pan with greased wax paper.
  2. Combine lentils, water, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until lentils are tender, about 30 minutes. Drain excess water and cool slightly.
  3. In a bowl, mix flour, salt, baking soda, and 2 tablespoons cinnamon. Set aside.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, mix eggs slightly with a wire whisk. Add sugar and oil, and mix again. Add walnuts, apples, and cooked lentils. Mix with a large spoon. Add flour mixture, and mix well.
  5. Pour batter into the prepared pan. Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Cool 20 minutes. Invert cake on a cutting board and remove waxed paper.
  6. Serve warm with ice cream.
