Aunt Rae's Dutch Hustle Cake (heirloom)

For many years, Aunt Rae ran the lunchroom at Hillside Avenue School, in Hillside NJ. I remember that she used to make all the sandwiches for all the kids, everyday. That was back when students could walk home for lunch if they wanted to. A lot of the children in her school chose to stay and eat the school lunches. There was milk and a piece of fruit in the bag lunches that she prepared.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 package regular yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 egg, well beaten
  • 1 1/3 cups sifted flour

Instructions

  1. Scald milk; stir in sugar, salt and butter.
  2. Cool to lukewarm.
  3. In a mixing bowl, dissolve the yeast in the warm water.
  4. Stir in the lukewarm milk mixture.
  5. Add the egg and flour. Beat until smooth.
  6. Spread dough evenly in a 9-inch square pan.
  7. Arrange on top: 1 1/2 cups thinly sliced apple pieces, sprinkled with 2 tablespoons brown sugar and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg. Dot with 2 tablespoons butter.
  8. Cover and let rise until double, 40 minutes or more.
  9. Bake at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes.
