Apple Cake

Bobby at HOT COFFEE & COOL JAZZ shared this recipe for Apple Cake.  I tried it and it was really good--spoke to me of all things autumn.
Having a slight anti-authoritarian steak, I can never just follow a recipe exactly. When I made it, I substituted 1/4 cup of apple cider for 1/4 cup out of the 3/4 cup of oil and there were no problems with that.  I also used King Arthur white whole wheat flour.   Hey, this is Vermont.  There is no actual law that says one MUST use King Arthur flour, but is clearly the correct thing to do.

I had a fun day with friends making Christmas cards today.  Donna and her mother have a fabulous assortment of all the right tools and lots of experience so I feel like I learned a lot.

Incidentally, she served squash soup and the orange-cranberry scones that are currently featured on the K.A. site noted above.  Delicioso, as my 3 year-old (Dora the Explorer watching) grand son would say.

  1. It's still hitting the mid 80s here in Atlanta so I'm enjoying at least thinking about Fall.

  2. Ok, I wasn't going over for the cake but the orange-cranberry scones lured me in. After breakfast that is. Thanks.

    Clearly! ;-)
    Thanks for using/recommending King Arthur Flour!

  4. Not sure why an apple cake needs so much oil. I always lessen the amount of fat and sugar in recipes and they still turn out. Yummy post!
