These cakes are one of my favorite memories from childhood.
The recipe is from dad's mom, and although we didn't grow up near our grandparents, I feel a little closer to her when I think of her baking them for her kids the way mom baked them for us.
Mom never made the variations, in fact I didn't even know they existed until I saw the recipe. But I can vouch for the tastiness and wonderfulness of the apple cake!!
Apples (mom used Granny Smith)
A Package Cake Mix
==OR "the following recipe which is very good" ==
1 c. Sugar
1 or 2 Eggs
2 tbsp. Butter
1 c. Milk
2 1/2 c. Flour
dash of Salt
2 tsp. Baking Powder
Grease 2 cake pans.
Peel, core, and thinly slice enough apples to cover bottom of both pans.
Prepare package cake mix
Cream sugar, eggs, butter, and milk. Sift together flour, salt, and baking powder; add to liquids and beat till mixed.
Pour over apples in pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until cake tester or toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
After cakes are done, turn them upside down onto plates covered with powdered sugar.
Dot apples with butter; sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar.
This recipe is good to spread with melted butter, cinnamon, and brown sugar; put on before you bake it (omit apples).
It may also be used, plain, for strawberry short cake.
