                           CAKE MIXTURE
       1/2    cup           soft margarine
        2/3  cup           superfine sugar
         3    eggs
         2    cups          flour
         1    teaspoon      baking powder
         1    teaspoon      baking soda
         1    teaspoon      cinnamon
        1/2  teaspoon      pumpkin pie spice
        2/3  cup           dry apple cider or apple juice
   Chop the nuts coarsely in the food processor, then put with the sugar in a
   small bowl. Put the apples in another. Grease a pan approximately 12 x 8 x
   2 in. and preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. In an electric mixer, cream
   the margarine and sugar until fluffy, beat in the eggs 1 at a time, then
   stir in the flour (sifted with the spices and raising agents) alternately
   with the liquid. Pour half the mixture into the prepared pan, arrange the
   sliced apples in an even layer on top and sprinkle with half the nut
   mixture. Smooth the remaining cake mixture on top and sprinkle with
   remaining nut mixture. Bake for 35 minutes, until spongy to the touch and a
   toothpick comes out clean from the center. Serve at room temp. cut into 24
