Default Old-Fashioned Apple Stack Cake

This recipe as been loved by my family for several generations. My great-grandma used to make this and my grandma still does. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

1 c. shortening
1 1/2 c. sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 c. milk
3 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt

Mix all ingredients together to form a stiff dough. Divide dough into 8 equal pieces. Roll each piece of dough on a floured surface to fit inside of 9 inch round cake pan. Bake 10 minutes at 375 degrees. When layers are cool, put together with thick cooked apples (cooked dried fruit is the best, but not necessary). Place one cake layer on a plate and spread about 1/2 cup of fruit per layer. Will make a cake about 9-10 layers high.

Friendly notes:

Apples that will cook down into an apple sauce should be used. To prepare the apples we slice a bunch apples about 8, Jonathan or Jonagold or wolf river depending where you are at you may need to find a cooking apple local to you. Put a bunch of butter in a frying pan and add the apples and sugar to taste. Cook them down and let cool. We usually do this a day ahead.

We roll out the dough and use a pan lid that is just under size of the 9" cake pan as a template. Cut off the dough from around the edges and set aside, this will accumulate and can be used to make layers 9 and possibly 10.

The dough will be stiff and similar to cookie dough, if there is a wrinkle or tear when you transfer it to the pan just mash the wrinkle flat or pinch / patch the tear.













Any questions just ask

It's best to let the cake stand overnight before eating, not a have to, but the cake and apples meld together.

Any cake that's not eaten within 2 days should be refrigerated.

Looks awesome. We planted an apple this this spring. Texas is not the ideal climate for them, but we will see. I'd love to try this recipe, with homegrown apples, right off the tree...

It does look amazing! I bet it would be good with a variety of fruit fillings (peach, blueberry, cherry, raspberry.....) or homemade marmalades and preserves between the layers. Will have to try this one. Thanks for sharing.

I'd be more than happy to send you some. I'm currently up in MI for work, so the apples here are the real deal. PM me if you're interested.
