~Our weekend, and a yummy recipe!~

~Since I still cannot go to church, our kids have to fend for themselves on Sunday mornings. 6 year old Sarah helped Noah get dressed for church yesterday morning, and she had him some cacki shorter pants on, a dressy shirt, this blue tie, and socks and tennis shoes on. So, Phillip and I intervened and had Noah take off his tie, telling him that he could wear his tie all afternoon when he came back home from church....so he did! =)~
Well, Thanks for your prayers, Jesus has given baby and I a pretty good weekend. I'm still nauseated some, but I was able to get some things done in our home, and I even cooked some food, and baked some Strawberry Scones for breakfast on Saturday, and on Sunday I made a decent meal for my poor family who have been living on canned soup and oatmeal. I made Spaghetti and sauce, homemade bread sticks, Harvard beets, and since my little Noah has been BEGGING me daily to make him a cake, I made him/us a quick apple cake! When my family returned home from church yesterday they were SOOOO EXCITED to have Mommy's cooking again! =D ~Poor Phillip laid down to have a Sunday afternoon nap on the couch, and he was joined by our 3 children...what a comfy rest! HA!~
God gave Phillip and the kids 2 good services yesterday. Kimberly had her Sunday school class but a lot of her students arrived late. She plans to have them start practicing for a simple Christmas program soon.
~Noah and "his" "Creamy Apple Cake" that Mommy finally made him!~
This is one of the best and most moist apple cakes I have ever eaten, and one of the quickest to make. I like it because it uses ingredients that most of us have on hands! When we were on deputation, Amy Bryant served it to us, and she had gotten the recipe from my good friend Kim Saylor. ENJOY!!
~Creamy Apple Cake~
4 cups peeled and diced tart apples
2 cups sugar (I use less) and 2 eggs.
Mix the above ingredients together in a bowl, this will be juicy.
In another bowl combine 2 cups flour, 2 1/2 teas. cinnamon, 1 teas. baking soda. Add dry ingredients to apple mixture, this mixture will be dry. Pat in a greased 9x13 dish and bake at 350 for 35 minutes.
Caramel Icing~
While your cake is baking, make this simple icing.
In a sauce pan on top of the stove combine 1/2 brown sugar, 1/2 white sugar, 1 cup water, and 2 Tab. flour. Cook on stove until thick and bubbly. Remove from heat and add 1 stick of margarine and 1 teas. vanilla. Stir until marg. is melted. Poke cake with fork and pour sauce over cake. Serve while warm. (Note, if you want to make your cake ahead of time, but want to serve it warm to guests, just make your caramel icing right before you serve your cake, and when you pour this HOT icing over the cake, this will make it pretty warm.) You could serve this with cool whip or ice cream, but it doesn't need anything. Delicious!
~Like Father, Like Son! The other day at the park, Phillip was riding one of our girl's bikes backwards...and so last night Noah got on his bike to try it! =O ~

It was good to talk to you on the phone the other morning. Sooooooo glad you're feeling a little better little bits of the time. Your cake sounds yummy! What a wonderful job your little family is doing in your off time. I love the pic of Phillip and the children taking a nap! What a loved daddy!
Keep feeling better,

Heather that sounds like the apple cake your mom and Laura made the summer you all came up here. It sounds very similar and it is sooooo yummy!! Glad you're feeling some better!!

Sherry L said...

That Creamy Apple Cake recipe did it! I'm not reading your blog anymore! While trying to get well, I am allowed no flour, sugar, desserts, candy, cookies- and all I've been reading about on these Fall Flavored Blogs are these very items! And, then, you post a graphic picture of your latest forbidden (to me) fruit. You might as well continually place a bottle of Jim Beam Liquor in front of a recovering alcoholic! I'll be back after The Holidays. [Just joking!] Love, Mom D

Heather, so glad you are feeling some better. I've been thinking about you and wondering how you were doing. The cake really sounds wonderful. My husband loves anything made with apples. I'm going to give it a try. God bless.

Heather,
I made your Creamy Apple Cake last night....and it was GREAT! I think it tastes even better this morning! :) Thanks for sharing the recipe.
I thought it was pretty funny when I got a email from my SIL, Kim, and she said she made your pumpkin cookies last night, as well. :)
Hope you get feeling better soon.
Love,
Janice
