"September Recipes".....

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it!.....Goerge Eliot

Today is Sunday.....The first September Sunday of 2008.....It is close to 100 degrees here at our house, but I am working on Halloween swap boxes,... doing a bit of cooking... & quite contently pretending it is a lovely Autumn day, with crisp, cool temps. & leaves a falling. I am quite tardy with the posting of recipes, so I thought I would rectify that with this post! I am sharing two amazing recipes, both of which are especially good at this time of year! The first is a recipe I was given by my good friend Linda... She lives in the tiniest of villages back east, in a big old house & is quite the cook! This cake she shared one day when a group of us were getting together at my house to quilt. It is "German Apple Cake with Cream Cheese Icing" & is simply delectable!.....The other is a Gooseberry Patch recipe, for "corn pudding" that I have made dozens of times over the last several years. This corn pudding is something that can be made at this time of year to accompany turkey or beef, but also works well along side mexican dishes as well!.....Try them for yourself....I'm sure they will become "family favorites" at your house too!

Gooseberry Patch Corn Pudding:

16 oz. can corn, drained
16 oz. can creamed corn
2 eggs, beaten
8 oz. pkg. corn muffin mix
1/2 c. butter, melted
1 c. cheddar cheese
Mix all ingredients together except the cheese. Pour into greased dish (13" x 9"), bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, Sprinkle with cheese and bake 15 minutes longer, makes 6 servings.

German Apple Cake with Cream Cheese Icing:

1 1/4 cup olive oil
3 well-beaten eggs
2 cups sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
3 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
3 cups chopped apples
Mix beaten egg, oil, sugar, & vanilla. Add dry ingredients to mixture. Batter will be thick. Add apples. Bake at 350 degrees for about an hour in greased 9" x 13" pan.

Cream Cheese Icing
6 oz. cream cheese,... room temp.
1/4 cup, melted
1 3/4 cup confectioner's sugar
1 tsp. lemon juice
Beat cream cheese until fluffy. Beat in butter. Stir in confectioner's sugar & lemon juice. Spread over cooled cake.

I have a similar recipe to the corn pudding, and everyone LOVES it. Can hardly wait to try the German Apple Cake. I made the Apple Cake Doris this weekend and definitely kept my reputation as an excellent cook! I'll put a plug in with my next post!

Yum, these sound tasty Heidi. Don't think we get creamed corn over here but I think I might try the cake. Always goes down well in our house! Pop over my post when you get a mo - I've let everyone in on what is printed on the precious cushion you made for me!

Patti September 8, 2008 at 2:49 PM

Trish September 8, 2008 at 4:06 PM  

That apple cake sounds soooo yummy! We're planning on going to the orchard this weekend. This recipe will be a great way to use some of the apples! Not just for apple crisp! :)

Brenda September 8, 2008 at 4:48 PM  

Sounds delicious! I love your fall colors. Everybody seems to be in that "Halloween's in the air" frame of mind!

I love your new banner! I'm in NY wishing it was later in the season so there'd be some Fall color. But no... it's hot here too! ::Jill

Hi Heidi,
I've been looking at your blog, but under the Halloween post and that hadn't changed, so I'm fnally got on the right blog...sometimes I'm not with the program. So, now I have to catch up on all your post since I go to read what's new..and a little package should arrive later this week at your house :)
Warmly, Deb
