DIRECTIONS

  • Lightly oil a 10" round deep pan, and set the oven rack to middle of the oven position.
  • In a food processor bowl, or by hand, chop the dates and pecans together until they look almost like crumbs.
  • Put the chopped mix into mixing bowl big enough to hold all ingredients, probably a 3 quart or 4 quart size is best.
  • Shred the apples, and add them with the lemon juice, softened butter sub and sweetener to the bowl, mixing well and coating the apples with lemon juice.
  • Sift the flour with salt and baking soda, and add to the bowl, mix very well.
  • Spoon mixture into prepared 10" round pan and top with cinnamon and sugar, blended together.
  • Bake at 350° for 45 minutes, covering the top lightly at the 30 minute mark with a foil or parchment paper round if it browns more than you like.
  • Test for doneness with a long pick in the middle, if still slightly gooey, turn off the oven and rest another 15 minutes.
  • Let cool 15 minutes before turning out or cutting---it will crumble if cut too soon, but a serrated knife minimizes that.
