Fresh apples make this coffee cake moist and tender. Serve warm or cooled with a dusting of powdered sugar. Use golden or red delicious apples.
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups cored, peeled and diced sweet apple
1/4 cup salad oil
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup chopped nuts
Sift flour, salt and soda together; set aside.
Place apple in a medium-size bowl. Break egg over apples. Add oil, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and nuts; blend thoroughly. Stir dry mixture into apple mixture just until flour is moist. (The mixture will seem dry.) Spread in a greased 8-inch square pan. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 30-35 minutes until a wooden pick comes out clean. Turn out on plate and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
