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!
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!
