1 c. brown sugar
1 c. molasses
1 c. buttermilk
1 tsp. soda

1/2 c. shortening
4 eggs
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Self rising flour to make a stiff batter (like biscuits)

1/2 gallon uncooked dried apples that have been cooked and mashed or 1/2 gallon apple sauce (flavor with cinnamon)


Mix and divide into 8 balls; press each ball into a greased iron skillet or griddle. Bake at 400 8 to 10 minutes or until browned.

Sweeten and flavor apples to taste. If applesauce is used for filling, it should be cooked some to dry it out. (Dried apples may be covered with water and cooked at 10 lb. pressure for 10 minutes in a pressure cooker.)

Submitted by Juanita Owen. Ingredients were in Mom's words. I didn't write down how it was mixed, but she used the procedure that is included in "Kentucky Stack Cake."
