Fran's Story

Mom got this recipe from my Aunt Waneta Lynch Harris around 1963. My brother, Bob, always wanted this cake as his birthday cake.

Mom always served it without frosting, but my niece, Emilea, who is a pastry chef, recently added a cream cheese frosting. So I'm including a Cream Cheese Topping that can be added, if you wish. =^..^=

Ingredients

3 c
peeled apples, sliced thin
2 c
white sugar
1 c
crisco oil
1/2 tsp
baking soda
3 tsp
baking powder
3 c
all-purpose flour
1 tsp
vanilla
2
eggs
1 c
walnut pieces, optional
1/2 c
raisins, optional
sprinkle
confectioner's sugar
CREAM CHEESE TOPPING
3 oz
cream cheese, room temperature
3 Tbsp
margarine or butter
1/2 tsp
vanilla
1 1/2 c
confectioner's sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Stir the apple slices and sugar together in a large bowl & let stand for one hour.
2
Add oil, baking soda, baking powder, flour, vanilla, eggs, walnuts, & raisins to the apples & sugar and mix together well. You may need to add a little milk (start with 1 Tablespoon) to make the batter stirrable, depending on the juiciness of the apples.
3
Pour the batter into a cooking-sprayed 13 x 9 pan.
4
Bake at 350 degrees F. for 40-45 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean from the center.
5
Sprinkle with a little confectioner's sugar, if desired. Serve warm or cooled. Top with Cream Cheese Topping or whipped cream.
6
CREAM CHEESE TOPPING: Beat all ingredients together using a mixer until well-blended. Chill until ready to use.

Linda, picking apples with kids & grandkids is a tradition in my family, too. Have to teach those young'uns how to make our Apple Pies, Apple Cakes, and Homemade Applesauce so they can feed us properly when we get too old to cook! LOL =^..^=

You know, Paulette, I didn't hear back about the crumb topping nor did I try it myself. (I grew up eating this cake "plain" and still prefer it that way.) But if you try it, please let me know what you think. This is the same crumb topping I use for Apple Crisp. Have a great weekend! =^..^=

Hi there Fran I was reading about the crumb topping for your cake and was wondering if you heard how it turned out or if you tried it yourself. I would love to hear how it was. Thanks.
