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

Blend well

Sift and add to the above liquid mixture:
3 c. flour
3 heaping tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Beat well

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.

Bake at 350' for one hour

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