Mrs. Harry S. Truman’s Ozark Pudding
1 ¼ teaspoon baking powder
½ cup chopped nuts (I used walnuts.)
1 teaspoon vanilla
¾ cup sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
½ cup raw chopped apples
Beat the egg and sugar for a considerable time, until it is very smooth. Mix flour, baking powder and salt and then stir into sugar-egg mixture. Add apples, nuts, and vanilla. Bake in a buttered pie pan in 350-degree oven for 35 minutes. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream. A little rum flavoring may be added, if desired.

Variations I thought of:
- Make individual puddings in ramekins.
- Use pecans instead of walnuts.
- For those who don’t like nuts, leave them out and double the apples.
- Add cinnamon, nutmeg, or apple pie seasoning.
