An Autumn Weekend...

The weather has turned chilly for keeps, and our menu tonight reflects that. We'll enjoy steaming bowls of Autumn Soup with corn muffins on the side and follow up with a slice of Grandmother Hawkin's Apple Cake. Cooking in the autumn and winter months is so much more satisfying than in spring and summer!


Grandmother Hawkin's Apple Cake


3 cups of chopped apples
2 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 eggs
1 1/3 cups sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

Cinnamon Sugar Topping
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare the apples. In a medium sized bowl, mix eggs well. Add sugar, butter, applesauce, and vanilla and mix well. Add dry ingredients and mix until well blended. Fold in apples. Prepare cinnamon sugar topping in a small bowl. Grease and flour a 9x13 pan or tube pan. Pour in half the batter and sprinkle half the cinnamon sugar on top. Pour in the remaining batter and top with the rest of the cinnamon sugar. Bake for 45 minutes - an hour or until a toothpick comes out clean.
