OLD FASHION APPLE TORTE

This apple torte is a good addition to brunch, great with coffee for visiting with friends, and many other occasions.  It is not too sweet and goes perfectly topped with either a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.  Sprinkle either with a little ground cinnamon for a special touch.

2/3 cup sifted all-purpose flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
3 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs, beaten
2 cups diced apples
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt.  Add the sugar and vanilla to the beaten eggs.  Beat well.  Add dry ingredients, apple and nuts to liquid mixture.  Mix well and bake in a well-greased 8 x 12 x 4-inch baking dish for 45 minutes at 350 degrees.
