Apple Cake with Hot Buttered Rum Sauce


1/4 cup Butter
1 cup Sugar
1 Egg
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Baking soda
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp. Ginger
1/4 tsp. Nutmeg
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 cup Flour
2 cups Peeled and finely diced apples
1/2 cup Walnuts, chopped
7×11″ pan

1/4 cup Evaporated milk
2 Tbl. Butter or margarine
1/2 cup Brown sugar
1 Tbl. Rum

Preheat oven to 325?. Butter a 7×11″ baking pan.

In a large bowl beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add egg and beat until smooth. Add salt, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and vanilla. Beat until well mixed. Stir in flour and mix just until smooth. Stir in apples and nuts.

Pour into pan.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until cake is done. The cake should be lightly browned and the middle of cake should spring back when touched lightly with your finger.

Prepare topping: In a small saucepan combine evaporated milk, butter, and brown sugar. Stir over medium heat until mixture just comes to a boil. Immediately remove from heat. (Mixture will curdle if allowed to boil rapidly.) Add rum.

Serve warm over individual pieces of cake.

Note: To use a 9×13 inch pan, prepare 1 1/2 times the recipe.
