  •  1 tsp. CREAM of tartar.
  •  3 tbsps. sugar.
  •  1/2 tsp. salt.
  •  1 egg.
  •  1/2 tsp. soda sifted into the flour.
  •  6 tart apples.

Mix the dry ingredients, beat the egg and mix it with the milk, stir this into the dry mixture. Core, pare and cut the apples into quarters (if large into eighths). Place in the bottom of a PUDDING dish, sprinkle over them the sugar, a little nutmeg or cinnamon may be added if desired. Put the mixture over this, lifting the apples with a fork or spoon so as to let the mixture penetrate to the bottom of the pan. Bake in a moderately hot oven about 30 minutes. Serve with lemon Sauce or thin CUSTARD.
