Apple Spice Cake- The Golden Fluffo Cookbook

This vintage recipe is from Creative Cooking Made Easy- The Golden Fluffo Cookbook. The book is copyright 1956 and Golden Fluffo was a golden-yellow shortening. I suppose you could use the butter flavored Crisco if they still make that. This recipe is frugal also because it only calls for 1/2 cup of nuts. A lot of apple cake recipes call for more nuts.
Apple Spice Cake
2 cups sifted flour
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/2 cup Fluffo
3/4 cup light brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup grated raw apple
1 tablespoons vinegar plus water to make 1/2 cup
1/2 cup chopped nuts
Combine flour, soda, salt and spices. Blend Fluffo, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla Add flour mixture alternately with grated apple and water. Stir in nuts. Spread in prepared loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
