Ok - so I'm a flunkie in the kitchen but I do still try - I ran across this blog some time ago and still love to check it out every Monday for meal ideas - it's a yummy one!! Hey, who knows - maybe I'll get inspired and suprise my patient husband!!
Don't get too shocked now, I baked yesterday!! I will post the recipe I made with some fresh apples we went and picked - it is an apple bundt cake-- It was so good and so "Fall-y".
1/4 C cinnamon-sugar mixture
4 apples, chopped small
1 C vegetable oil
2 C all-purpose flour
2 C sugar
1/2 t baking soda
1 t cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a Bundt or tube pan and coat with cinnamon misture. Mix apples, eggs and oil with an electric mixer. Add flour, sugar, baking soda and cinnamon; mix well. Pour into pan and bake about 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Allow cake to rest in pan for at least 10 minutes; invert onto a cake plate. To prepare glaze, combine butter, brown sugar and milk in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute. Spoon over cake. Allow to cook before serving.
Glaze: 2 T butter, 1/2 C firmly packed light brown sugar, 2 T milk
Serve with a dollop of whipped cream or scoop of vanilla ice cream. Nut lovers can add 1 C of chopped walnuts or pecans to the cake batter.
Another of my favorite blogs to check daily is Wantnot. She posts deals on that website daily - yesterday's was free shipping at The Company Store - but she has new stuff everyday - you never know what bargain you will find and I'm a bargain hunter so that's right up my alley!!
And lastly - my favorite new site to check - our friends are adopting a baby girl from China and they just started a website - go and cheer them on - they are our dear pastor and wife and we are so excited for them - they have a wonderful story - and a beautiful daughter waiting in China for them. I told her she just needs to get some pictures of Caeleigh on there and that would be even better!!
