This is not a good recipe. The syrup is a short cut way to make caramel. More effective would be to actually make the caramel by melting the sugar to the caramel stage. And then, probably, pouring it over the “cake” after baking. The apples are impossible to mix into the “batter” which is unpourable. Better to mix the apples into the sugar and flour mixture and then add the milk. They plop the mixture onto the caramel. Or bak alone and pour the caramel over. The pan is an unorthodox size, not generally kept on hand. 9X13 and 10X10 are more ordinary sizes. Was this recipe ever tested? By real people following the recipe? I think not.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
