Apple Cake

Wednesday, January 9th, 2013

This is by far one of the most sought after recipes in my arsenal.  I have been baking this cake for 50 years when people come to our house for coffee and cake.  One of the things I love best about it is the lingering smell of apples and cinnamon long after our friends have left.

Bri anna, no one else has this recipe yet so this is your chance to shine if you act fast you will be the first!

1/4 Cup Butter 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 Cup Sugar 1 3/4 Cup Flour
2 Eggs 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Cup Milk 2 Teaspoon Baking Powder

 

 

2 Granny Smith Apples, peeled Cored and sliced thin

Put the batter into a baking pan and place the apples as in the diagram below which was drawn for me by Aunt Clara years ago when I was a young bride.  Sprinkle generously with a mixture of granulated sugar and cinnamon prior to baking.  I have resorted to placing these cherished recipes online because they have faded and smudged from many years of use.

Bake for about 35 minutes at 375 degrees.

After removing it from the over drizzle with melted butter and let cool.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving.

A Photo f Clara and Marie – 2 dear friends with whom I lived on President Street in Park Slope Brooklyn  before I was married.
They became life long friends and always considered me as their neice.  Their mother died in childbirth and they were
raised by their father.  They had no siblings and neither of them ever had children. They were born in 1900.

They molded much of my life as many of the recipes I have were handed down to me from them.  They were such beautiful people
and I loved them dearly!
