Apple Torte

1/4 cup butter
1 egg
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4-1/2 cup chopped nuts
2 1/2 cups finely chopped apples (about 3)

Caramel sauce
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon rum flavor

Directions & Story; Cream butter and sugar, add eggs, and mix. Add dry ingredients, apples and nuts. Put in a well greased pan 10 1/2 X 6 and bake 1 hour at 325 degrees.
Serve with caramel sauce or whipped cream. To make caramel sauce, mix ingredients together and heat slowly until melted and well blended. pour over cut pieces of torte before serving.

Aunt Eva made this very rich dessert. I got the recipe from her in 1967 when I was a Sophomore in high school. It's good when the torte is heated up and the caramel sauce is warm. My aunts Eva and Augusta invited us over almost every Sunday for a very big Sunday dinner-salads, vegetables, desserts, and homemade breads or rolls. Always excellent!!
