Soups and Samplers a 1962 tome which to the naked eye looks like any 10 cent garage sale cookbook. Really it's a turdy looking gem--chock full of rock-solid no-fail recipes.
The apple nut cake in question sounds like nothing special, but this version yields extremely moist and flavorful chunks that melt in your mouth and warm the cockles of your bitter frost-bitten heart!
...and let's face it, who hates the smell of appley spicy goodness filling your house!? On Christmas fer crying out loud!?
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1/4 cup oil
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
nutmeg and cinnamon to taste (nutmeg is hated by our family so we omit it, and it's ok!)
these assholes totally love the apple nut cake!
