Apple Cake with Orange Topping

1/2 cup butter, very soft or melted
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
3 beaten eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp lemon and/or orange peel or 1 tsp lemon and/or orange extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
2 cups grated chopped cooking apples
juice of 1 lemon
raisins soaked in orange juice (optional)

Beat fats and sugar until fluffy, add eggs, extract/peel, and
vanilla, beat again. Sift flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt,
add to batter. Add apples, lemon juice, and raisins, mix well.
Bake 1&1/2 hours at 350 degrees in a very-well-greased and floured
Angel food tube pan or a Bundt pan. Test with a toothpick to see
if it's done. Place the pan upside down on a plate and let cool
for 15-20 min before removing pan.


2 oranges
1 cup water
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup honey (or 1/3 cup maple syrup, or 1/3 cup extra sugar)

Juice oranges; combine juice with remaining ingredients and set
aside. Cut oranges into quarters, then thin slices; cook orange
slices in water to cover (not 1 cup water---that goes in juice
mixture) until tender, 20 minutes. Drain. Add reserved ingredients,
and cook until thick and sweet and syrupy and well-candied, about
30 minutes.
