mother-in-law, Lucy Purdy, loves this recipe
because it meets her requirement for absolutely
effortless baking. The only time spent is preparing
one apple, and you don't even have to peel it
before grating unless you want to; you can mix
the batter by hand in just a minute. The result
is a moist, richly flavored pudding with just
a hint of cakey texture, filled with sweetly
spiced apples and nuts."
