1½ cups granulated sugar
¾ cup shortening
2½ cups flour
3 cups peeled & thinly sliced apples (usually 3 or 4 apples)
½ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1½ teaspoon cinnamon
¾ teaspoon salt
¾ cup warm coffee
½ cup chopped walnuts (opt)
Cream sugar & shortening, add eggs & beat mixture well. In a separate bowl combine flour, baking soda, ¾ teaspoon cinnamon & salt. Sift gradually into the sugar/shortening/egg mixture adding alternately with warm coffee. Fold in apple pieces and chopped walnuts.
Place mixture in greased/floured 9" x 12" pan. Sprinkle topping of ½
teaspoon cinnamon & ½ cup brown sugar over the top.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45-55 mins.
This recipe was given to me many years ago by a dear friend. The coffee makes it so good and is easy to throw together when there's still breakfast coffee left in the pot. Perfect for a wintery Saturday or Sunday afternoon treat.
