How to make it

  • Mix milk, soda, and powder together in a large bowl.
  • Mix flour and sugar together in a separate bowl, then add crisco and blend.
  • Add eggs and milk mixture.
  • Knead dough together with hands, using additional flour if sticky. Once it is a uniform texture, separate into three small pie pans. You should have three good-sized cakes from the recipe.
  • Bake @ 300 degrees for 55-65 minutes. Let cool and serve with coffee, milk, or as dessert. Enjoy!!!

    It used to be baked in a pie tin, so it was called "a pie cake". Over time the name became run together as "apie cake" on the wrapped cakes for sale at farmers' markets, so it was soon pronounced AY-pee cake --finally shortened to AP cake.

    Does anyone know why it's called "ap" cake?

    You can also use 1 c sugar and 1 c brown sugar instead of 2 c brown sugar. It makes it not quite a hard but still very good.

    Oh, and I always like to sprinkle white sugar on the top before sticking it in the oven... just for a little extra crunch when it's done!
