Topping
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 small package coconut
1 teaspoon Watkins Cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/4 cup butter, melted

Cake
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup Crisco shortening or butter
1 cup sour milk
2 eggs
2 1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon Watkins Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Watkins Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups peeled, chopped apples

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place rack low in oven. Butter bottom of 9×13 inch baking pan.

For topping – In a small bowl mix sugars, coconut, cinnamon, chopped nuts, and melted butter. Set aside.

For cake – Mix flour, soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a separate bowl.

Mix sugars in a large bowl and cream with shortening or butter.

If you don’t have sour milk, make the milk by placing one tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice in a one cup measuring cup. Fill cup with milk to make one cup. Let sit for 5 minutes; then stir.

Beat eggs and add with the sour milk to creamed mixture, alternately with the flour mixture and ending with the flour mixture.

Finally stir in the chopped apples. Pour batter into prepared pan; then crumble coconut nut mixture over the cake batter.

Bake 50-55 minutes until golden brown. The topping bakes into the cake as the batter rises while baking.

Serve warm or at room temperature, plain or with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
