Yummy Sunday

I l-o-v-e to cook.

DH l-o-v-e-s to cook.

So I do my best to stay out of the kitchen.

I surrender to temptation about once a week, and today was THE day.

This is my Apple Dapple Cake recipe. It makes 2 loaves, and it freezes VERY well.

No, I still haven't found the "Celery Salt" ceramic that I'm searching for. There are several on ebay, I'm still watching for the specific one to complete my silly set.
One hour of cooking and the carmel sauce on top...yields:

Yeah, I couldn't resist to dig it outta the pan before it was entirely cooled, lol. This loaf is 1/2 gone (with the addition of coffee) and hopefully I'll get the second loaf in the freezer before we eat it. Suppose you could top it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or some whipped cream, but we like it naked.

Apple Dapple Cake

2 c. sugar
3 eggs
1-1/2 c. oil (I use canola)
Combine above ingredients and beat well.
Add 1 t. vanilla
In separate bowl combine:
3 c. flour sifted with
1 t. soda
1 t. salt
Add dry to wet ingredients and add:
3 c. raw chopped peeled apples (I used Gala)
1 c. chopped pecans

Pour into 2 standard loaf pans, greased and floured.

Bake at 350 for 1 hour.

Topping (make just as cakes finish baking)

Place in saucepan:
1 c. light brown sugar
1 stick butter
1/4 c. evaporated milk
Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, and boil 2-1/2 mintes.
Pour over hot cakes while topping is hot

Cool completely in pans before removing

Freezes very well.

Let me know if you try it!

Enjoy your day today~

It's NOT the same around here:

I h-a-t-e to cook.

DH l-o-v-e-s to cook.

I l-o-v-e to eat.

It works out fine. I had his homemade strawberry/pear jam on his fresh baked bread this morning.

Dh was just saying last night "We need a new dessert". I will try this one and let you know. It looks wonderful. Thanks for the advice on the beans. I will leave them alone. And I can put pepper plants in instead of seeds. I am in Northern IL so it was frosty not to long ago.

Oh. My. Be still my heart. Must. Have. That.

Ooooooo YOU! That cake looks soooo good! Guess who gave up all sweets??? I don't know if I feel deprived because I cannot eat this luscious looking dessert or happy because just looking at it makes me feel good!
