The Chef's Table

Chopped Apple Cake

4 Cups apples peeled, cored and roughly chopped
2 Cups granulated sugar
2 Cups AP flour
2/3 Cups shortening
2 Eggs
1 ½ Teaspoon baking soda
1 Teaspoon baking powder
1 Teaspoon cinnamon
½ Teaspoon nutmeg
½ Teaspoon salt (Sea salt is recommended)
1 Cup chopped nuts of your choice (Optional, cake is very good without)

Pre-heat oven to 350º

Combine all ingredients by hand in a large mixing bowl except the apples.  When all the ingredients are well mixed gently mix in the apples and pour the mixture out into a 9"x13" baking dish.  The baking dish needs not be greased.  Place in the pre-heated oven on a rack placed in the middle of the oven.

Bake for 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.  Remove from the oven and place on a cooling rack and allow to cool.

This is a perfect dessert for a potluck or other such function.  A very quick and easy recipe to make.
