Apple Coffee Cake

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cup self rising flour
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 med. tart apples, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl cream butter and sugar. Beat in egg and vanilla. Add cinnamon to flour. Gradually add flour to mixture. Fold in apples and nuts. Pour into an 8 x 8 x 2 baking dish. Bake 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Serves 9

Changes - use pears instead of apples. Change the spices by using allspice, apple pie spice, pumpkin pie spice, or maybe cloves.
