A little yummy for your tummy

Happy Wednesday everyone!

As you know - we had a blog hop that made everyone crave for more - not only cute images - but a lot of tasty cakes. The DT girls made me so inspired so I got to bake an apple cake too. (We got tons of apples in our garden this year). You will find the recipe in the end of this post.

I coloured "Warm apple pie" with my copics to match the DP Eskimo Kisses Rooftop (yes - I am currently in love with this DP - that's why you've seen it a lot on my posts lately ;-)
I thought that I should create a more Winter scene for our cute Belle. That's why I did not want to add too many embellies - just leave the stage to Belle and the wonderful DP.
Added some dew drops, the sentiment and ribbon from SU + a heart charm.
I think Belle looks like an older version of Heidi and I could imagine her serving desserts after a Swiss fondue. What do you think of when you see her? Must say that I miss Switzerland. Used to live and work there for 2.5 years and Switzerland and Zürich is forever in my heart. It's my second country in the world. And Swiss Fondue is def. something that we have every winter - love, love, love it! Will share my recipe of Swiss Fondue (that I got from my Swiss friends) another time.
Well- over to the recipe for the Apple Cake:

* 150 g of butter (melt)

* 2 egg (whip together with the sugar until it's white)
* 1 1/2 dl sugar

* 3 dl flour
* 1 teaspoon of baking powder (mix with the flour)

Mix everything together.

Poor it in your baking tin.

* Peel 3 - 4 apples and cut them into pieces.
* Mix 2 teaspoons of cinnamon with 2 table spoons of sugar.
* Roll the apple pieces in the cinnamon/sugar mix.
Decorate the cake with the apple pieces as you see fit.

Bake the cake in the oven at 175 degrees C for approx 30-40 minutes.
You'll see when it's ready :-)

I made it in my roasting pan (that is as large as the size of the oven). Therefore I had to multiply the recipe x 2.

Cut the cake and then it's ready to be eaten just as it is, together with vanilla sauce or with icecream. Your choice. Hope you like it.

So glad you had a good time in Chicago and isn't it funny how a NEW machine will make a relatively boring chore (laundry) fun again for a few weeks, ???? LOL> We're in the middle of attempting to remodel the craft room..... ayayaya, I'll be glad when it's done!
