Beat thoroughly and again let rise. Spread as thinly as possible in a well -buttered dropping pan. Brush over with melted butter. Press sliced apples into the dough in even rows. Sprinkle with one-fourth cup of sugar mixed with one-half teaspoon of cinnamon, then with two tablespoons of well-washed currants. Cover an let rise; bake in a moderate oven for 30 minutes.

When cold, add 3 well-beaten eggs, one half cup butter, 1 teaspoon each of cinnamon cloves and allspice, and 3 cups of flour sifted with one teaspoon of soda. Stir well and bake in one loaf.
