"APPLES WERE plentiful in our area, so they were the staple of many of the desserts served at our table. This apple recipe was one of my mom's favorites. Today, it reigns supreme in our family as the choice dessert. Warm or cold, it's a treat every time!"
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg; add to creamed mixture (batter will be very thick). Stir in the apples, nuts.
Spread into a greased 8-in. square baking pan. Bake at 350° for 35-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with just a few crumbs. Serve warm or cold with whipped cream or ice cream.
