Jean's Ukrainian Apple Cake
Many years ago I worked with a lovely woman named Jean. Every morning she brought in fresh-baked goodies for all to share. This is her recipe for Ukrainian Apple Cake - a huge favorite with everyone!
|Apple Cake with Whipped Cream|
1 1/2 c. white sugar
3 Tbsp Crisco
Add 3 eggs, one at a time. Blend well
Pour in 1 c. oil, 1 c. cold water and 1 tsp vanilla
Sift and add to the above liquid mixture:
3 c. flour
3 heaping tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
|Picking our apples|
Now peel and slice 8 to 10 apples. I used some of the apples from our apple trees that I had peeled, sliced and put in the freezer.
Mix 3/4 c. sugar and 2 tsp cinnamon
Grease a 9x13 pan. Pour half the batter into the pan. Spread all the apples on top then sprinkle with half of the sugar-cinnamon mixture. Pour on the rest of the batter and sprinkle the rest of the sugar-cinnamon mixture over top.

This is superb. Delicious warm or cold. Serve it with ice cream, whipping cream or on its own.
