Fresh Apple Cake

(no picture sorry)

I LOVE this cake. It's in Grandma's cookbook, but my mom's is a little different and that's what I used.

1 c. shortening (butter or margarine works too)
2 c. sugar
2 eggs

Cream together then mix rest of ingredients together in separte bowl with apples and add to creamed mixture:

2 c. flour
2 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cloves 5 c. peeled and grated apples
1 c. chopped nuts (pecans)

Pour into 9x13 pan and bake @ 350 for 40-45 minutes

Top each peice with Nutmeg Sauce:

1 c. sugar
1 T cornstarch
1 c. water

Cook until water is boiling and clear. Remove from heat and add:

1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 T margarine
1 tsp. vanilla

So yummy!
