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.
- 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 all-purpose flour
- Scald milk; stir in sugar, salt and butter.
- Cool to lukewarm.
- In a mixing bowl, dissolve the yeast in the warm water.
- Stir in the lukewarm milk mixture.
- Add the egg and flour. Beat until smooth.
- Spread dough evenly in a 9 inch square pan.
- 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.
- Cover and let rise until double, 40 minutes or more.
- Bake at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes.
