I found this recipe in an old cookbook, Favorite Recipes of Indiana.  It makes a very good suppertime dessert – easy and quick to make.


  • 2 medium tart apples, pared and diced in small pieces (Golden Delicious, Granny Smith)
  • ½ to ¾ cup granulated sugar (depending on tartness of apples)
  • ½ cup chopped nuts
  • ½ cup chopped dates
  • 2 Tblsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 egg, beaten

In a medium bowl, combine apples, sugar, nuts and dates.  Mix flour with baking powder and salt; blend into apple mixture.  Stir in beaten egg.

Place mixture in a greased 8” baking pan.

Bake @ 350 for approximately 30 minutes until apples are done and top is golden brown.

Serve with whipped cream or topping.

Good warm or chilled.  4-6 servings
