Dutch Apple Cake
Happy Victoria Day! In keeping with all of the desserts we have had on our travels, here is one from our friend, Kathy in Ontario.
4 tart apples

Peel and core the apples. Cut into eighths. Sift flour, salt and sugar into an 8 x 8 cake pan. Combine oil and milk and pour over the flour mixture. Mix with fork until dampened. Pat out to cover bottom of the pan and push dough up along the ides to depth of 1 inch. Arrange apples on the pastry, sprinkle with struesel topping and bake at 425 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes.
Mix 3/4 cup sugar, 2 T. flour, 1/4 tsp. salt in a bowl. Add a bit of cinnamon if you want. Cut in 2 T butter until crumbly.
