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.
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 ~
