1 Teaspoon of Cloves
1 Teaspoon of Nutmeg
2 1/2 Cups of Flour
1/4 Teaspoon of Salt
1 Teaspoon of Baking Soda
2 Teaspoon of Vanilla
2 Cups of Delicious Apples (Diced to Pea Size)

Add eggs to the creamed mixture. Add cinnamon, allspice, cloves, nutmeg, salt, and baking soda to the creamed mixture and mix well. Add flour 1/2 cup at a time, mixing well after each 1/2 cup until all 2 1/2 cups are added. Add vanilla and mix well. Add the apples to the batter, stirring to mix all ingredients.
