Eat Cake!

While the cats did this, I decided to get creative in the kitchen.

Apple Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting - Well, I have never tasted anything like this. Luckily for me and my family I stumbled across a blog called Note Songs by Shelia ( and just had to try a recipe that she had posted for the above dessert. I served it at a family dinner and when company had left I proceeded to finish the cake. I have NEVER done that in my life. It was to die for. Well, I raise an eyebrow to that saying but it was worth another 1 hour walk with my dog the next day. Thanks Shelia for sharing this recipe. It has been added to my 'Favorite Recipes' book.

Homemade Apple Cake

1/2 cup of butter, melted
2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
4 Granny Smith apples, peeled and diced
1 cup chopped walnuts
Cream Cheese Frosting
Chopped walnuts

Stir together first 4 ingredients. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients; add to butter mixture, stirring until blended. Stir in apple slices and 1 cup of walnuts. Spread into greased 13 x 9 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 min. Cool. Spread with Cream Cheese Frosting ; sprinke with toasted walnuts. Store in refrigerator. About 12 - 15 servings.
(This dough will look thick like cookie dough)

Plan to have to exercise next day. Enjoy!
