This was an adopted recipe from Recipe*zaar I made these delicious squares last night, they are really moist and tasty! I did change the recipe and I am happy with the results. I used butter, my two apples measured 1 1/2 cups.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Blend butter and sugar, then beat in egg and vanilla until mixture is light and fluffy
  3. Stir in apples, dates and nuts. Set aside.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder and baking soda.
  5. Gradually stir flour mixture into the fruit mixture. The batter will be very stiff, but it will mix together nicely, keep stirring!
  6. Spread into a greased 9"x9" pan and bake until golden brown. 30 - 45 minutes (I used and 8" pan and it required 45 minutes to bake.

This was very simple recipe to do and oh so very delicious as well. I didn't have any nuts so I increased the date to 2/3 cup instead of 1/2 cup. :-)

I've just taken these out of the oven and if they taste anything like they smell, then I can't wait to bite into them! I increased each ingredient by half as I was using a 9X13 pan, however, I used two full eggs. I baked for 40 minutes. The top seems a bit dark compared to the picture above, but I'm sure it won't affect the taste. I'll include other comments later after I've tasted them.
