6 tbsp butter, softened
1 c sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 c all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp ground cloves
2 c finely chopped raw apple
1/2 c raisins
1/2 c chopped walnuts (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350. Butter and flour an 8-inch square pan. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar; add the eggs and vanilla, beating well. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and spices. Combine both mixtures, beating until smooth; mixture will be stiff. Add the chopped apple, raisins and nuts, stirring well. Spoon into the prepared pan, spreading evenly. Bake for about 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and cool on a rack. Serve warm or cooled with whipped cream.

Personal Notes:
No need to peel the apples! This cake is best the day it's made, and is a great autumn dessert.
