CHER'S WONDERFUL APPLE CAKE
by Sister Marilynn W.
1/4 Cup melted Butter
2 Cups Sugar
3 Tablespoons Milk
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
4 Cups chopped Apples
1 Cup either Raisins or Dates
2 Cups Flour
3/4 Teaspoon Soda
1/2 Tablespoon Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 for 9" X 13" non-stick dark pan, or 325 for glass pan.
1. Mix together the first 5 ingredients.
2. Add apples. I use 4 medium sized Fugi apples peeled (and cut into pieces about the size of 1/2 your little finger or larger), and either the Raisins or Dates.
3. Mix dry ingredients and add to all the other ingredients.
4. Batter will seem VERY DRY, but just mix it well with large spoon and it will work. (The moisture in the apples compensate for the lack of other liquid in the recipe).
5. Bake 45 to 60 minutes in greased and floured (or Pam Spray).
6. As soon as you take it out of the oven, spread about 1/4 to 1/2 cube of butter on the top.
This recipe makes for a lot of good snacking. When cool, I cut it into 2 X 2" squares, wrap them in foil, and store them in the refrigerator. They keep many weeks, and almost improve with age. ENJOY!

GRANDMA'S APPLE PIE

1/2 cup unsalted butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
8 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add water, white sugar and brown sugar, and bring to a boil. Reduce temperature and let simmer.
Place the bottom crust in your pan. Fill with apples, mounded slightly. Cover with a lattice work crust. Gently pour the sugar and butter liquid over the crust. Pour slowly so that it does not run off.
Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes, until apples are soft.
