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
1/2 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.
