This week’s recipe comes from Sally DeWeese of Traverse City.
DeWeese says her mother made the recipe often during the fall months and everyone loved it.
Apple Dessert Cake
1/3 c. shortening
2/3 c. sugar
3/4 t. vanilla
11/2 c. cake flour
21/2 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
1/2 c. milk
Combine the first four ingredients and mix well. Then continue to add the ingredients in order and mix. In a greased eight-by-eight-inch baking pan melt 3 tablespoons of butter and add a 1/2 cup of brown sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Slice a bed of baking apples into the bottom of the pan and pour the batter over top.
Bake at 375° for 25 to 30 minutes. Check with a toothpick to make sure the apples are done.
