My Mom's Raw Apple & Nut Cake
Does anyone reading this have a suggestion? I just love this recipe in the fall, but it is an old recipe. Something, my mom made, and it calls for shortening. Can I substitute another oil and get the same result?
It comes out with a crunchy top but so soft and nice inside. I suspect you would loose some of the texture with another oil.
Mom's Raw Apple & Nut Cake
Cream 1/2 c. shortening, 2 c. sugar. Beat well: 2 eggs; then add to creamed mixture with 1 t. vanilla.
Sift together and add to creamed mixture: 2 c. flour, 2 t. soda, 1 t. cinnamon, 1 t. nutmeg. Then add 4 c. raw apples, peeled and diced fine, 1/2 c. nuts and 3/4 c. raisins (optional).
This is a very stiff dough. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.
My 8 x 13 Pyrex sprayed with cooking spray is what I've always used.
