Last year November I made a last ditch effort to get my blog at this site going. I had started it in March, but could not figure out how to get to other blogs, and if I'm not mistaken (I'm Miss Forgetful) the follow feature was not there yet, only the blogs of note.
These blogs get tiresome pretty quickly, while some have a strange world view, and others have a real attitude! It probably has to do with my taste, but for half of them, I could not see why they were a blog of note! So escaped to Myspace and made about a hundred friends there. One of them, also had a blog here, Tadn'Tina, and I am very thankful that she explained to me how the system goes here!Since last November I've met all of you and make this month my blog birthday!
There are 3 other birthdays in my family: my oldest daughter, my brother, and hubby.
No birthday without a cake. In Holland, where I I am originally from, it is the birthday girl or boy who provide the refreshments. So I'm posting a cake from friends in Holland. Anneke Super and her hubby were a big support when we made a big transition from one to two children. After this, the third baby was a piece of cake!
The original recipe is actually the double amount of this one, and it's easy to make some favorite additions, such as almonds, or other nuts, berries, or flavors.
In a baking pan 11 x 8 inch, the baking time is approx. 50 min. at 350 degrees Fahrenheit, or 180 degrees Celsius, or no. 4 for oven.
Butter and flour the pan before putting in the batter.
When the recipe is doubled, put the batter in a 13 x 9 inch baking pan and, the baking time becomes 1 hour and 10 min. for most ovens.
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
pinch of salt (optional)
1/2 cup & 1 Tablespoon milk
1 3/4 cup of flour
1 /34 teaspoon baking powder
2-3 apples (almost any type of apple)
Mix sugar and butter till creamy
Add eggs one by one.
Stir in the milk (don't worry if it looks like the milk is spoilt)
Mix the flour and baking powder and add to above ingredients
Put batter in baking pan
Arrange peeled and cored apple slices on top of batter
Sprinkle with cinnamon (I like a lot!)
Have a slice!
