Apple Cake

This makes a simple, yet really lovely cake.  It’s moist, spicy and very apple-y.  (Not sure that’s a word.)  It also comes out of the oven with a crunchy, spicy top.  

1 cup sugar
1/4 cup softened butter
1 egg
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground cloves
2 cups apples, cored and chopped

Preheat oven to 325.

Blend sugar, butter and egg in a medium bowl until smooth and creamy. Mix dry ingredients in a small bowl and add to sugar, butter and egg mix. Stir gently until fairly smooth.  Add apples and toss gently with the dough (it’s quite thick and sticky.)  Turn out into an 8×8 baking dish and bake for 35 minutes.
