Apple Cake

Apple cake is another of my grandmother’s recipes.  She used to use Spy apples but if you can’t find them a tart apple like Granny Smith will work. Serve with ice cream or your favourite frosting.



1 cup sugar

1/2 cup butter

1 egg

1/2 cup cold coffee.

1/2 cup grated apple

1/2 cup chopped raisins

1/2 cup chopped nuts

Mix sugar, butter, egg, and coffee in a bowl.  Fold in apple nuts and raisins.

In a separate bowl combine

1 1/2 cups flour

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp cloves

1/4 tsp nutmeg

Fold wet ingredients into dry and mix thoroughly. 

Pour batter into a greased pan and bake for 30 to 40 minutes.

This loaf can be frosted with icing sugar mixed with orange juice.
