This recipe is from the book "Let Them Eat Cake" by Sarah Purdy. The words below are her own.

"My 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."


Butter-flavour no-stick cooking spray
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup unsifted cake flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp ground ginger
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1 or 2 large apples, peeled, cored and grated (1 cup grated)


Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350ºF. Lightly coat a baking pan with cooking spray. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, vanilla, and sugar. Whisk together and add the dry ingredients. Stir in the nuts and grated apple.

Turn the batter out onto the prepared pan and bake for 40 - 45 minutes, until the top is golden brown and springy to the touch and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve warm, spooned from the baking pan.
