1/2 lb. butter or margarine
3 cups SIFTED flour (measure then sift)
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tbsp. baking powder
1 tbsp. vanilla
2 cans pie filling
Cream sugar and butter. Add eggs and cream some more. Add rest of ingredients except pie filling. Beat until blended. Batter will be thick.
Spread 2/3 only of batter on jelly roll pan. Won't spread easily, don't worry. Spread pie filling evenly over batter.
Drop remaining batter by spoonfuls on top. Place in 350 degree over for 5 minutes. Remove and swirl top with spoon, spreading out batter you dropped on top. Now bake 30-40 minutes. Let cake cool.
Glaze: (optional, I don't usually use it but it looks pretty)
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk
Bring butter, regular sugar and milk to boil. Remove, add enough powdered sugar to make a thin icing. Dallop of cool whip if desired or ice cream.
