The other night when a group of us gathered to play bridge, my friend, Linda, brought dessert for us to enjoy.  And enjoy we did.  

She found the recipe in a Kansas Fruit Growers Association Cookbook.   Since Linda is from Kansas, she said she had really enjoyed looking at the recipes in the cookbook.  Maybe she will share some more with me in the future.  

The reduced sugar amounts are what she used to make it.  I can't imagine using the full cup of sugar.  It tasted just perfect the way Linda made it.  Hope you will give it a try.



1     cup sugar  (1/2  cup is plenty)
1/4  cup butter/margarine, softened
1     egg, well beaten
2     cups shredded apples (Granny Smith work well)
1     cup flour
1     teaspoon baking soda 
1     teaspoon cinnamon
1/2  teaspoon nutmeg
1/4  teaspoon salt
1/2  cup chopped nuts


1/4  cup butter/margarine
1/2  cup evaporated milk
1     cup sugar (1/2  cup is plenty)
1-1/2 teaspoon vanilla
dash of nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Using an 8 x 8 - inch square pan, well grease it.

Mix all the ingredients for the cake together.

Pour into pan and cook for 45 minutes.  Cut into squares to serve.

To prepare the sauce:

Combine all the ingredients and boil for 15 minutes.  Pour the hot sauce over  cake to serve.
