 1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Generously oil a 9-inch square pan & 
 dust with flour.

 at high speed until they form sturdy peaks.
 3) In another large bowl, combine apples with all remaining ingredients 
 (including optional nuts & cranberries) & mix well.

 mixture until fairly well combined.  Transfer to the prepared pan, and 
 bake about 30 minutes - until a probe comes out clean.  Cool before 
 slicing.  Serve plain or dusted with powdered sugar.
