This coffee cake is always a hit with my family. I find it especially delicious because it's not too sweet. Of all the coffee cakes I've tried, it remains our family favorite.


  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 2 baking apples, peeled and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons sugar

  1. In a large bowl, cream shortening and sugar. Add egg and beat well. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition. Stir in the raisins. Spread batter in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Top with apples. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over the apples.
