When Melissa and her family arrived in Munsonville, they stopped for lunch at Sue’s Diner on
Street, a dingy, squat-looking gray building with
surprisingly good food, especially the apple pudding.

1 cup sugar
2 ½ cups flour
Vanilla flavoring or lemon flavoring, to taste
Butter a baking dish and sprinkle with bread crumbs, then cover with sliced apples, sprinkle these with sugar and chopped blanched almonds, then add another layer of apples and proceed thus until the dish is ½ full. Beat the eggs with sugar by hand for 30 minutes. Then fold in carefully the flour, adding vanilla or lemon flavoring to taste, and pour over the apples. Bake slowly for 1 hour.
