I have lived in Texas for the past 33 years so I love coming across old Texas recipes. This 1914 recipe is so simple and they didn't have modern ovens with temperature settings.

Dried Apple Cake
The following recipe was transcribed ver batim from 
The Dallas Morning News
Dallas, Texas
March 22, 1914
One cup dried apples. Soak overnight and then chop fine,  Simmer slowly two hours in a cup of molasses. Cream one-third cup butter with one cup sugar; add one egg one teaspoon cinnamon, one teaspoon cloves, one-half teaspoon nutmeg,, a few grains of salt, two cups flour. Beat this mixture thoroughly and then add the apple and molassas.
