Mom's Apple Butter Cake Recipe

Today I am sharing with all of you another vintage recipe from my great aunt's stash. She has 5 huge boxes of recipes that she clipped out of magazines, newspapers and cookbooks over the years and I am preserving a lot of those vintage recipes by placing them here onto my foodie blog for others to enjoy.

Mom's Apple Butter Cake Recipe

1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1 cup granulated sugar
4 large eggs, well beaten
2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup sour milk or buttermilk
1 cup apple butter

Cream the vegetable shortening, add the granulated sugar gradually and continue to cream thoroughly until fluffy. Add well beaten eggs and mix thoroughly. Sift the flour, measure and sift again with salt, baking soda and spices. Add this to the dry ingredients alternately with the sour milk (or buttermilk). Stir in the apple butter and blend it well into the mixture.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Pour batter into a 5" by 9" by 4" baking dish. Bake in a preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until done. Remove and let cool for 15 minutes before serving.
