What is your favorite food/best recipe?? Tell the Truth Thursday-9-9-2010

Tell The Truth Thursday





The question this week is :


What is your favorite food/best recipe??

I don't remember who I got this recipe from.  It was probably from my Dad's mom (Farmor in Swedish).  She lived near us and we got to see her often.  My Mormor and Morfar (my Mom's parents) lived in Sweden and I only got to see them 2 times, when I was 3 and 16 years old.  My Farmor was an amazing cook.  I would love to watch and help her cook and then share it with other family members.  I remember I was always praised if I ever helped Farmor out.  I was very close to her till she died at age 84 (just shy of 85) in 1990.  I was 28 at the time and glad I had her for that long. 





APPLE CAKE



INGREDIENTS:

1 cube butter
2 cups sugar
2 cups flour and 3/4 tsp baking powder
2 eggs
3 apples sliced with 1 tsp. cinnamon and 1 cup sugar

PREHEAT Oven for 400 degrees F

First slice the apples and soak in the cinnamon and sugar (that was mixed together)

Mix flour and baking soda together, put bowl aside.

Then mix the sugar and butter together till smooth.  Add two eggs, one at a time.

Add flour and baking soda mixture slowly.

Pour into a loaf pan/meatloaf pan



Put in the apple slices.  You will need to keep on smooshing them in to make them all fit.  Then pour the cinnamon on top.

Bake for about 40 minutes.


Picture this with apples stuffed in it.

Serve with whip cream, vanilla pudding mixed with whip cream, or ice cream.

This is easy and sooo soo yummy!

Yum is right! This looks like the perfect treat for a Fall evening!

And I did get the links, thanks! I will definitely be using them. I responded to your comment when it came into my email, but it obviously didn't get through to you. I can't figure out why responding to some comments reach people and others don't! Janell

Hi Kat,
Glad to stop by again... I am already following you and love the recipe you added. I love apples and anything with apples in it works for me.
I chose a popular African rice dish that people enjoy on special occasions. Stop by and take a look.
Best,

Hi Kat-

I have an apple cake recipe that is very good, but uses so many ingredients I rarely make it, yours looks easy and delicious. I am going to try it. I am eating my breakfast right now, a slice of the cake would taste pretty yummy with my tea.

You asked how much parking cost for the day in NYC - $31.00

Thanks for leaving all the nice comments.

My best- Diane

Now this is a recipe to bookmark. I love anything with apples in it. This will be a great alternative to apple pie.
