I used to make the most delicious apple/currant conserve, but I have no idea where the recipe is. I found this one, though, that's pretty much like it, except that it calls for raisins instead of currants. I think either one would be good. I left the nuts out when I made it, but that's purely a matter of taste. I didn't use any food color...it was already a pretty pink color from the apple peelings.

i just make my second one of these yesterday and I am very fond of this cake. I like the proportion of the ingredients; lotsa apples. I have cut down the sugar and it needs to be cut down even more. Yesterday I used 3/4 cup sugar and it still is very sweet, will try 1/2 cup next round. Apparently this is a centuries old recipe, lots of versions around..

Nobby Apple Cake

3 TBS butter
1 c sugar, or way less
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 c flour
3 c cored, diced tart apples (don't bother peeling)
1/4 c chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 F

Grease 8x8x2 pan
Cream the butter and sugar. Add eggs and beat well. Add vanilla.
Sift dry ingredients, and add to creamed. Stir in apples and nuts (sometimes I add raisins as well).
Bake 40 to 45 min., or until a toothpick comes out clean.
