Apple Cake

1 c All-purpose flour; sifted
1 1/2 ts Baking powder
1/2 ts Salt
1 tb Sugar
1/4 c Shortening
1 Egg; slightly beaten
1/4 c Milk
4 c Tart apples; sliced; pared and cored
1/2 ts Cinnamon
1/4 ts Nutmeg
2 tb Granulated sugar
1/2 c Apricot jam
2 tb Shortening; melted


In a medium-large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and 1 tablespoon granulated sugar. With two knives, cut the shortening into the flour until mixture is mealy. Make a well in the center and drop in the egg and milk. Stir in the flour mixture to form smooth batter, turn into greased 2-quart mold. Arrange the apples in rows on top, pushing them halfway into the dough. In a small bowl, mix the cinnamon, nutmeg and 2 tablespoons sugar. Sprinkle over the apples and dot with apricot jam. Drizzle butter over all. Place in the slow cooker and cover loosely with a plate. Cover the cooker, but prop the lid open a fraction with a toothpick or a twist of foil to let excess steam escape. Cook on High for 3 to 4 hours. Makes 6 servings.
