  1. Preheat oven at 350F for 15 minutes. Grease an 8-inch square baking dish.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Since the quantity of butter is very less, the creamed mixture was dry and resembled coarse crumbs.

  3. In a blender/food processor blend together Ener-G, water, soy milk and vanilla extract until nice and foamy.

  4. Add the Ener-G mixture to the creamed butter/sugar and beat everything together with the hand mixer until thoroughly combined. This mixture looks creamy like a white sauce.

  5. In another bowl combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg (if using). Add this to the wet ingredients. The batter will be thick.

  6. Stir in apples and nuts. Mix it thoroughly.

  7. Spread the batter in the prepared pan and bake for 35-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out with just a few crumbs. Mine was done around 38 minutes. You can also see that the cake starts pulling from the edges.

  8. This cake can be sliced directly from the pan while its still warm, so no need to wait for the pan to cool to invert it and then slice it.
