Tea on Tuesday: Apple Cakes with Lemon Sauce

2 tablespoons shortening
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg white
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup shredded peeled apple
1/4 cup chopped pecans
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/4 cup cold water
1-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
1-1/2 teaspoons butter

In a small bowl, beat shortening and sugar until crumbly, about 2 minutes. Beat in egg white until combined. Combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg; add to shortening mixture just until combined. Fold in apple and pecans (batter will be thick).

Divide between two 8-oz. ramekins or custard cups coated with cooking spray. Bake at 325° for 28-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine the sugar, cornstarch and water until smooth. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 2-3 minutes or until thickened, stirring every 30 seconds. Stir in lemon juice and butter until blended. Spoon over warm cakes.

Yield: 2 servings.
