Title: Apple cake #4
Yield: 16 Servings
4 tb Lard (I did use lard as I
-had some; gonna try Crisco
5 md Sized mcintosh apples
-(and I obviously used
1 1/2 tb Fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 c Flour
2 pk (0.25-oz) active dry yeast
1/4 c Tepid water
2/3 c Sugar
2 ts Grated lemon peel
1/2 c Raisins; soaked in water for
-20 minutes & drained
Melt the lard
in a saucepan and let it cool. Cut the apples in quarters and remove
the cores and skin, then cut into thin slices. Place the apple slices
in a bowl and sprinkle the lemon juice over them. Place 1 cup of the
flour in a second bowl and make a well in it. Dissolve the yeast in
the water and pour it into the well; stir with a wooden spoon. Add
the sugar, melted lard, grated lemon peel and eggs, and when these
ingredients are all well incorporated, sprinkle in the remaining
flour. Stir very well, until the dough is smooth and very soft, then
add the soaked raisins (I left them out cause I didn't have any) and
half the apple slices, mixing them in well.
Place the dough in an oiled cake mold or springform pan and arrange
the remaining apple slices on top. Cover with a dish towel and let
the dough rise until it is almost doubled in bulk.
When the dough has risen, remove the towel and bake in a preheated
400F oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the top of the cake is
golden brown. Let the cake cool for 30 minutes before turning out.
