From Carlene Duda's 'Beyond Oatmeal: 101 Breakfast Recipes'...I have an apple tree that puts out a lot of apples and I am putting them to good use with this recipe.

Just didn't have a lot of flavor. I made caramel sauce to go over it and that helped. I loved the fresh apples in it and even put cinnamon in the recipe after tasting it with just the nutmeg. Just tasted kind of plain. But super moist.
