Apple Cake

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 tsps baking powder
  • 4 Tbsps shortening
  • About 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 Tbsps sugar
  • Apples, pared, cored & cut into sections
  • Brown sugar
  • Cinnamon
- Sift together the salt, flour and baking powder. Cut or rub in the shortening until the fat is thoroughly blended with the flour. Mix to a very soft dough with the milk, having the milk as cold as possible.

- Turn onto a well flour-covered surface. Knead just enough to give a smooth upper surface, then roll out or pat with the hand about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch thick. Place in a smoderately greased baking pan. Cover with the cut apples. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon.

- Bake in a moderately hot oven at 400°F for about 30 minutes, having the pan covered for during the first 15 minutes (be patient, you rascal).
