Fresh Buttermilk Apple Cake

This is one recipe I love. You usually have the ingredient's already. If you do not have buttermilk on hand, I read and have done this and the (cake tastes just as good). When measuring milk, leave out 1 Tbsp. Then add 1 Tbsp. vinegar or lemon juice to the milk. It works. I was sure surprised the first time I tried it!

Ingredients

Cake

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 2 tsp. soda
  • 1 cup sour cream (buttermilk?)
    Ad
  • 2-eggs beaten
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cloves
  • 2 cups (2-3 medium apples) peeled and chopped

Topping:

  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (I use walnuts)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/8 tsp. cinnamon

Directions

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Use a 13x9 inch pan, greased.

In large bowl blend 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup shortening. Dissolve soda in 1 cup buttermilk, Stir into shortening mixture.

Add flour to ingredients a little at a time and adding the spices with the flour. This way they really get mixed well.

Now fold apples into the cake batter, and pour into pan.

Topping: Add ingredients for topping in a small bowl. Mix and set aside.

Sprinkle topping over batter in pan. Bake for 35-45 minutes, and enjoy!

It sounds like a good recipe and the ingredients are often on hand. I'd like to try it but I wonder if you use an electric mixer or do you just mix it up with a wooden spoon?

This sounds delicious, but I have a question. Your list of ingredients doesn't include buttermilk, but it does list sour cream.

In the instructions, you said to dissolve soda in 1 cup of buttermilk.

Do you use both 1 cup of sour cream AND 1 cup of buttermilk? This sounds like a lot of "liquid".
