I’m getting married in four months (yay! let the countdown begin!). I have a dress I need to fit into. Despite this fact, I have recently determined to start blogging again- which does not only include baking and cooking- but eating! Big time. I just can’t help it though…I find these recipes filled with butter and chocolatey amazingness, and flour and brown sugar, and all good things transformed into one delicious dessert and I have to make it! Some would consider this counter-intuitive, but I think, what better way (besides finishing my degree!) to spend the next four months? Right? Right!
The other day I came home and my mom was in the throws of putting together an impromptu dinner for my sisters, brothers-in-law, fiancée, and his brother. While she was throwing stuff into a big pot on the stove while simultaneously chopping up onions and tomatoes she said “I wish we had a cake for dessert!” Well, never fear! Apple cake is here! My mother has had this recipe since seventh grade. It’s on a beat up recipe card in her red recipe box that I’ve known since I was little, and I thought it would be just the thing for dessert. The only problem was that by the time the apple cake was out of the oven sister and brother-in-law #1 went home to put my darling niece to sleep, sister #2 left, sister #3 went out with friends, and awesome fiancée and his brother went to play basketball. Oh well. More cake for me and my mom.
- 3 eggs
- ¾ c. oil
- 1 c sugar (scant)
- 1 ½ c flour (sifted)
- 2 tsp b powder
- A pinch of salt
- 3-6 baking apples
- Rind of 1 orange + juice
- Cinnamon sugar (1 tsp cinnamon+ 5 tsp sugar)
Beat eggs. Add sugar, and continue to beat. Add oil, orange rind, and juice. Add sifted flour baking powder, and salt. Pour a little less than half the batter into the bottom of a greased square (8 *8) pan. Place sliced apples on batter. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Spread the remaining batter over the apples and cinnamon. Sprinkle the top with a little of the cinnamon sugar mixture. Bake at 350 for one hour, or until baked.
Now excuse me, I have to get back to my breakfast of leftover pizza and cheesecake.
Have a great day!
