Apple Date Pudding


* 4-5 apples, peeled, cored and diced
* 2/3 to 3/4 cup cane sugar, according to taste
* 1/2 cup chopped dates
* 1/2 cup toasted, chopped pecans
* 2 tbs. flour
* 1 tsp. baking powder
* 1/8 tsp. salt
* 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
* 2 tbs. melted butter
* 1 egg, beaten

In the slow cooker or crockpot, place apples, sugar, dates and pecans; stir.

In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg and stir into apple mixture.

Drizzle melted butter over batter and stir. Stir in egg. Set cooker on low and cook for 3 to 4 hours. Serve warm.

NOTE: The dates are sweet, so I would start with the 2/3 cup sugar. If crispier nuts are desired, add toasted pecans at the end of cooking period.
