Apple Squares

I participate in several Food Forums, I may have mentioned this before; a nice gentleman posted a recipe that his Sister gave him for what they call Apple Squares, me, I say pure yumminess is much more along the line!

Serves 9


130g (1 C.) All Purpose Flour

240g (1 1/4 C.) granulated Sugar

1/2 tsp. Salt

1/2 tsp. ground Cinnamon

1/8 tsp. ground Nutmeg

2 tsp. Baking Powder

3/4 C. Chopped Walnuts (I used Pecans)

3 Macintosh Apples, peeled, cored and diced (I had Ruby Frost Apples that needed using)

2 Eggs, beaten


Preheat the over to 375°F

Grease and line with parchment paper, an 8″ x 8″ pan

Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl.  Add the Apples and mix well.  Stir in the beaten Eggs thoroughly.  This makes a very stiff batter, but be patient, it will come together.  Pour the batter into the pan and spread it out evenly with an off-set spatula.

Bake for 40-45 minutes, until a toothpick test comes out clean.  Cool the cake completely on a wire rack, in the pan.

Using the parchment paper, remove carefully to a cutting board and slice with a serrated knife into 9 equal pieces.


Why not guild the lily and serve your cake ala mode?  😀

    This recipe has no oil (butter, etc.). Is that correct?

      Yup, that’s correct Roxanne. I know, it sounded off kilter to me too, and when I made up this batter, it was VERY stiff. You’ve got to really work it well with a stout wooden spoon and then use an off-set spatula to spread it in the pan. But this is such a good cake, I hope you’ll try it and let me know what you think.
      Oh, and thank you so much for stopping by, I hope that you’ll come back soon.

      You know it Ross! Next time I make this recipe, I’m going to serve it not only with a good Vanilla Ice Cream, but Salted Caramel Sauce too 😀
