Friday, August 22, 2008

Hello Friends,....."Friday" has found it's way back to us once again. Even though this may still be only the 22nd day of August, my attentions are focused towards the coming "Autumn"!....."Fabric-wise", I am finding myself migrating to "small dark prints & plaids",....In the garden, it is the "cool weather crops" that are needing to be planted.... & in the kitchen, I already have a list of "fall recipes", I am dying to try!......So today I am sharing designer
Carolyne Roehm's "Apple Cake Doris". I have made it many times before, with amazingly delicious results!!....You must try it!...& maybe this weekend!...It is one of those cakes that can be enjoyed from breakfast,... to afternoon tea... & even as a late night snack!.....I have "zucchini breads" in the oven as I write this post, but in a few hours, "Apple Cake Doris" will be filling this house with the scents of "Fall"!..... Join me,... gather together some tart apples & mix up a couple of these cakes!.....Is there really any better way to welcome in the weekend?....

Makes one large bundt cake or 2 small loaves

1 cup plus 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
3 cups unsifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups granulated sugar
2 large eggs
3 tablespoons milk
2 cups (about 2 large) tart apples, peeled, cored, and cut into ½ inch dice

Preheat oven to 350° F. Using 1 tablespoon oil, grease a tube pan or two mini loaf pans measuring 5 ¾ x 3 x 2 ½ inches.
In a medium bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon and set aside.
In a large bowl, blend sugar and remaining 1 cup of oil. Add eggs and milk and beat until well combined.
Add reserved dry ingredients to sugar mixture and stir until just blended. Fold in apples. Makes a very thick batter.
Press batter evenly into prepared pan(s) and bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Let cool in pan for 10 minutes. Invert pan, place serving plate on top and turn out cake.


1 cup apple cider
¼ cup butter, melted
2 cups powdered sugar

In a saucepan, simmer apple cider over medium heat until reduced by half, about 10-15 minutes.
Add powdered sugar to cider and stir.
Remove pan from heat and whisk in melted butter. Cool slightly then pour over cake.

Note: Concerning my "Very Vintage Halloween Swap"....I am trying to assemble all of the participants addresses....I believe I have gotten in touch with of most of you, however am having a difficult time contacting Debbie, @ "From A Creative Heart".....If you read this Debbie, or are someone who knows her, would you please let me know....I would greatly appreciate it!.....And remember, there are still a few days left to sign up!!!!

I'm not really into cakes. But then I saw "Apple Cider Glaze," and that was it. Have to try it. I'll take it to a church potluck and maintain my "star status!" (Always looking for new ways to do that.)

Hi sweet Heidi :)

That cake looks divine!

I've been busy catching up with you. I laughed when I read PeeChee folders. You're the only one that remembers those besides me, I think :)

All the Christmas things are beautiful and make me yearn for cooler weather.

Have a beautiful weekend :)
