Dutch Apple Cake

I love Apple Cake, there is just something so homey about it.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup melted shortening (margarine works fine)
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
3 large tart cooking apples, pared, quartered, cored and sliced
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter

Sift flour, measure and resift 3 times with salt, baking powder and 2/3 of the sugar. Stir cooled melted shortening into egg and milk which have been beaten together, and add all at once to the dry ingredients. Stir quickly until flour mixture is just dampened; then stir 3 or 4 times more but not until smooth. Turn into buttered pan and spread out in even layer. Arrange apple slices in rows over top pressing sharp edges lightly into dough and sprinkle with remaining sugar mixed with the cinnamon. Dot with butter. Bake at 425, 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve warm with butter or lemon sauce. 5 to 6 servings. The Modern Family Cookbook
