Thanks for the great response on my blog, Yea Law! Where's My Purse? After reading it a few times, I realized I had failed to mention two items I loved to eat at Grandmama's house. Her meatloaf and her Fresh Apple Cake.
Even though it is the second day of fall and 89 degrees with low humidity, I'm busy in my AC cooled home pretending the leaves are already turning and the nights chilly enough for sitting on the deck star-gazing, with a cup of honey tea. In reality, the leaves may be turning due to a lack of rain but an enjoyable night on the deck is still questionable, especially with a hot beverage. Somehow, just sitting on the deck drinking Coca Cola is not appealing, for now. But of course, I do always love my Coke.
This blog is called Randomonium for a reason. That is the way my mind works. Mid-sentence, walking into one room distracted from a mission or maybe waking up in the middle of the night, wondering about my purse. I don't want to be tied to a certain style blog, unless it is my idea.
So in honor of the second day of fall, my favorite season, I'm bringing another recipe to your attention. I hope this cake will look better than my flop three weeks ago.
This is very easy to make, everything in one bowl. It is a stiff mix and I have been known to use manual labor to get it all together at the closing. Except for eating the cake, the best part is the two hour wait time for cooking. I guess I will grab a book and stay closeby in case the oven breaks or the timer goes off!
GRANDMAMA'S FRESH APPLE CAKE
Combine 3 cups flour / 2 cups sugar / 1 1/2 tsp soda / 1 tsp salt
Stir in 1 1/4 cup Wesson Oil / 1 tsp vanilla / 2 beaten eggs / 3 cups chopped apples /
1 cup chopped pecans
Grease and flour tube pan. Bake at 275 for 2 hours.
Well, this cake didn't win the pretty prize either. And there is no icing to cover up these spots. It is delicious but one more like this and I'm out of the cake business. I did have some flowers handy. I have placed flower tops in the ugly spots - viola- The Flower Topped Cake.
