DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • Lightly grease and flour a cake pan: 7"x11" (you can substitute an 8" or 9" square cake pan if needed).
  • Pare and core the apples and slice them thinly (about 1/4" to 1/2" thick). Mix the cinnamon and sugar and set aside.
  • For the cake batter:
  • Cream the 3/4 cup of sugar, the shortening, and egg together until fluffy. Gradually add the milk.
  • Sift the flour, baking powder, and baking soda together and stir into the first mixture.
  • Spread the batter in the prepared cake pan.
  • Arrange the apples on top of the batter in rows, overlapping slightly. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over the apples.
  • Bake @ 375 for 35 to 40 minutes.
