Fresh Apple Cake

Here is the first recipe by a dear friend and brand new contributor, Claudia.  She probably has forgotten all about giving this recipe to me, but that didn't stop me from passing it along.  This cake is good on day one and great on day two and up.  I love to use it as a coffee cake, too.  For dessert, add a dab of Cinnamon Whipped Cream.  Welcome Claudia!

Fresh Apple Cake

2 cups sugar
1/2 cup shortening
2 eggs
4 cups chopped, peeled apples
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
2 tsp. soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup raisins or dates
2 cups chopped nuts

Cream together sugar and shortening.  Add eggs, mix well.  Add finely chopped apples.  Mix.  Gradually stir in dry ingredients that have been mixed together.  Add nuts and fruit.  Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes in greased and floured 9 x 13" pan.  Serves 12-16.

  1. I love apples, and this cake sounds like a great application for them.
