Jewish Apple Cake

I used melted and cooled butter flavored Crisco instead of plain oil this time. The slight butter undertone was a great addition to the already delicious cake. Using half a cup of softened butter and a half cup of oil will give you a similar or even better result then the Crisco, but the original recipe calls for one cup of veg or canola oil.
