Welcome to September!
I hope you are all enjoying your last days of Summer. It really went by too fast; but Autumn is also a lovely season to enjoy.
I look forward to autumn for all the Fall Festivals to begin while still enjoying the feel of Summer, visiting local farm stands waiting for winter vegetables to start popping up. The farm stands this time of year are great to get winter squash plus pumpkins, gourds and cornstalks for outdoor fall decorations.
It’s also that time of year that within a day or two of Labor Day we will all be overloaded with “Pumpkin” everything!
Don’t get me wrong, I love pumpkin, but here is an alternative to pumpkin just in case you need a break from pumpkin donuts, pumpkin latte, pumpkin oatmeal, pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin pie milkshakes, pumpkin waffles, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin soup, and the list goes on and on.
It’s my Apple Cake
I just love this cake. All of you know by now that I am not much of a baker, but this cake is one of the easiest to prepare and is a family favorite. Not too many ingredients, simple directions and it always turns out perfect and delicious. What more can you ask for? I was given this recipe years ago and it has been my go to dessert on many occasions.
Autumn doesn’t officially begin until September 23, 2015, but this is a handy recipe to keep and use after all those days of apple picking and hay rides.
I hope you try this delicious cake and enjoy it. Let me know in the comments what you think.
Until my next post, stay well and make every day a celebration!
