I have had this recipe since the early 1970s.  It is so easy, kids love to help with this one.

2 tbsps butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar, divided
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 apple, cut into thin slices
1/4 cup raisins
1 pkg active dry yeast
3/4 cup warm (105 - 115 degrees) water)
1 tsp salt
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 large egg
1/4 cup shortening

Melt the butter in a 9-inch square baking pan.

In a small bowl, using a fork, mix the cinnamon with 1/2 cup of the sugar; sprinkle mixture over the melted butter.  Arrange the apple slices in rows over the sugar mixture; sprinkle the raisins over the apple slices.

In a large bowl stir the yeast and water together using a spoon.  Add the remaining sugar, the salt, and 1 cup of the flour; beat 2 minutes or until the batter drops from the spoon in sheets. Add the egg, shortening, and remaining flour; beat until smooth.

Drop the batter by small spoonfuls over the apples and raisins.  Cover pan and let rise in a warm place for 50 to 60 minutes until double in size.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Bake bread at 375 for 30 to 35 minutes until brown.  Immediately turn upside down on plate and remove the pan.
