Well, 1st I could not find the recipe, should have known and just forgotten it.... looked thru all my mags, which are quite a few as some of you know. I saw it somewhere.... then thought- Pinterest!!! no, not there. it was for an apple cake, sounds good huh??
Went to AllRecipe and searched for apple cake, found a bunch!! This is one that had the exact picture I remember, a small round cake..
WEEEEELLLLL.... it made much more than one cake, recipe called for a 9x13 pan and that is a large cake. but I started out with the small cake pan I had.... To make what the picture looked like... (let it be said here that I don't like 'messing' with a recipe and normally follow things exactly, especially when baking... do get adventurous with cassaroles tho) well had the eggs in the bowl and did not have enough veg oil, so used olive oil, as oil is oil, right??? There had been reviews of this cake and they said they cut the oil to 1/2 cup from 1 cup and sugar 1/4 cup less, so did that... Not enough flour!! Added some wheat flour. Then not enough sugar..so I ran out of oil, flour and sugar!!!.. AND the batter was crumbly, not at all like cake batter, you know it is supposed to be sort of flowy... so added about 1/4 cup milk, sounds good huh?? At least got the texture was looking for, finally...When added apples it was apparent that it was too much for my pan, so got out another round pan or deep dish pie plate really... then bake for 35-40 minutes.. not done added 10 minutes.. now done, but looks a little dark on the edges... Don't know yet what the taste is :) ???? It sure smells good tho....
Take Care All.. Wish us well haha
