4 cups apples, sliced (peeled and cored)
1 cup sugar
1 Tbsp. flour
2 Tbsp. butter
2 Tbsp. water
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
2¼ cups flour, sifted
2 tsp. baking powder

Combine first seven ingredients together in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until apples are tender. Pour into a greased and floured 9 x 13-inch pan. Sift together the 2 ¼ cups flour, 2 tsp. baking powder, 1 tsp. ginger, and ½ tsp. salt. In a mixing bowl, cream shortening and sugar; add eggs then beat for 1 minute. Add alternately the milk and sifted dry ingredients. Place half of the batter in a second bowl. Blend in the last 5 ingredients. Spoon both the light and dark batters alternately over the apples. Bake at 350°F for 50 to 60 minutes. Invert onto a serving platter or rack covered with waxed paper. Serve warm or cold; top with whipped cream, if desired.
