Mrs. Shore's Apple Cake Pudding Cake with Warm Lemon Sauce

in , , , , by 👩‍🍳 Cooking With a Southern Vibe in Music City USA 👩‍🍳, October 11, 2020

 Mrs. Shore was a friend of a friend, the McGuires, when I was a little girl.  She gave Helen this recipe, she gave it to mother and it became mom's favorite fall dessert.  It's a trip down memory lane, this recipe must be eighty years old.   I thought I had lost it, found it recently and decided to add it here so it won't be forgotten.  Is it as good as I remember? I hope so because some things are best left to childhood, but I'm going to make it and see.  It's actually relatively healthy, no butter except for the sauce

Mrs. Shore's Apple Pudding Cake with Warm Lemon Sauce

2 cups chopped apples               
1 cup sugar

Combine sugar with apples and let sit for ten minutes

1 egg, beaten
1 cup flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. soda
pinch of salt
1/2 cup nutmeats

Mix all together and bake in grease 9" square pan for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

Note:  I prefer to bake this in a 8" square pan, so it's a thicker cake, increasing baking time if needed.

Warm Lemon Sauce

Mix together in a saucepan:

1 Tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 cup sugar
1/8 tsp. salt

Gradually add 1 cup hot water and cook over medium heat stirring constantly until clear.  

Remove from heat and add 2 Tbs. lemon juice* and 1 tsp. grated lemon rind

Add 1 Tablespoon butter and blend well. 

Serve over warm cake.

*Add additional lemon juice for a tangier flavor
