This recipe is from “Dining with Pioneers.” A neighbor brought it to a Halloween Party. I bought the book so I could find the recipe.
2 cups Sugar
1/2 cup Water
1 cup Oil
3 diced Apples, (2.5 cups)
1 cup Chopped Nuts (optional)
2 1/2 cups Flour
2 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Cinnamon
2 package Nestle’s butterscotch chips
Combine sugar, eggs, water, and oil. Add dry ingredients. Mix in the apples and nuts. Pour into a greased and floured 13×9 pan. Sprinkle butterschotch chips over top of batter. Bake at 350° for 1 hour.
(This is better the next day. Use a spatula to remove in small squares so the moist part won’t be left in the pan.)
