After a wonderful early morning trip to the apple orchard, we came home in tow with three massive pumpkins, some minis, along with an abundance of different apples!! Jonagold, Honeycrisp, Macoun and Senshu were those that caught our eye and were placed into our baskets…
What better to do than snack on one on the drive back home… the Honeycrisp obviously won out, while the juiciness from each bite was reflected down our cheeks and in some spots on our jackets! That however is the fun of it all.
Once back home, there was absolutely zero hesitation; baking was about to occur… The island was prepped, the pan was greased and yes it was time!
The flour, sugar, salt, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon and oil were combined, then gently folded into the wondrously fragrant batter, the stars of this cake… a mix of those freshly picked apples which were peeled and diced up!
The batter was eased into the greased pan and thrown into the preheated oven… after baking for a little over an hour it was cooling time.
Now this moist and flavorful [ok so I snuck a tiny piece from the inside] cake will tease us until a real slice is enjoyed later!
I just don’t know how we will be able to wait till tonight for a real piece??
at a low simmer…
