DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, cream the butter.
  • Add the sugar and beat until fluffy.
  • Add egg and beat until blended, then mix in the baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  • Add the flour and stir just until blended.
  • Stir in the apples and nuts.
  • Pour into an oiled 9 inch round cake pan (I use a glass pie plate) and bake for 30 minutes or until the top springs back when touched lightly in the center.
  • Prepare sauce.
  • In a saucepan, melt the butter, brown sugar, and salt.
  • Bring to a boil, stirring with a whisk, then remove from heat and whisk in the vanilla and the cream.
  • (The sauce can be made ahead of time and reheated over hot water.) Serve the cake warm with the hot caramel sauce and a dollop of whipped cream.
  • The cake gets better as it ages, keeps for a week in the refrigerator, and also freezes well.
  • It can be reheated in the microwave.
