An apple cake that originated during the Depression when staples were scarce. A few changes and some sweet, plump golden raisins make it healthier. Spiced with the favorite companion to apple - cinnamon.
4 cups diced, peeled apples
2 cups golden raisins
2 cups unsweetened apple juice
1-1/2 cup packed brown sugar
6 tablespoons butter, cubed
2 teaspoons salt
1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
In a large saucepan, bring the first eight ingredients to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat; cool to room temperature.
In a large bowl, combine flour and baking soda; fold in the apple mixture. Transfer to a 10-inch fluted tube pan coated with non-stick cooking spray.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from the pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
Recipe makes 16 servings.
