Delicious Fall Food

And the Winner of the toggle clasp and $25.00 Gift Certificate to my Etsy Shop is

For My Sweet Daughter   Congratulations!!!!  My husband picked your name out of my hat. 

And now it is time for a little cake and coffee

Delicious Apfel Kuchen

In our social circle this is a favorite and I think we get invited to Potlucks just so we will bring it along.  My husband is the chef here.  Quite the good cook.  And here is his recipe, straight from a cookbook his mother used when he was growing up.  It has been modified for the new world cook who uses measuring cups and Fahrenheit.


1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 pound butter (2 sticks)
1 cup sugar
4 eggs

4-6 apples, peeled and quartered (Macintosh and Empire work well since they soften as they cook)

Topping  to sprinkle over the apples before baking
1 tablespoon Cinnamon
5 tablespoons sugar

Cream the butter with the sugar
Gradually add the 4 eggs and vanilla

Then mix in the flour, sugar and baking powder mixture and
beat until nice and smooth and fluffy.

Put the batter into a greased Springform pan about 9 or 10 inches in diameter

Arrange the apple quarters artfully on the top.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 45-50 minutes

Sprinkle on the sugar-cinnamon mixture

Let cool to warm and serve with vanilla ice cream, or whipped cream or just plain

    Thanks for sharing your studio - even though I am late to the party and missed all the fun. Comes from living in a different time zone.
    Love your barn!
