An Apple a Day...

When I saw these apples this morning I knew I needed to use them up before they spoiled...
So...how about some apple cake? Yummm
When my cake was ready to go in the oven...I started to think about how I like apples and use them to decorate my house. Come take a look...
They are scattered around...here and there...









Maybe you can find a recipe to use some apples in today too!
Here is my finished cake...It looked & smelled so good I had to have a piece before I even took the picture...Wish I could share it with you...

Ooh, the cake looks yummy! My favorite thing to make with apples is a Tarte Tatin. With some vanilla ice cream. I could probably eat half of it in one sitting. I LOVE all the apple-related items you have throughout your home!

Oh, that apple cake looks delish! I'll betit smelled as good as you said! I wish that the computer had scratch-n-sniff or smell-o-vision! LOL!

I too very much like the apple theme in your decor - apples seem a very reassuring and comforting thing really. I've been making this French apple cake recipe lately. It include almond powder for extra moistness and taste. And I have to agree with Mariana, Tarte Tatin is fabulous.

It was so nice of you to comment on my blog today. When I saw the name of your blog I wanted to visit right away. Cozy...Cottage...two of my favorite things in this life. I only had a few minutes to visit, but I know I will be back. Your Apple cake looks so delicious! Do you share recipes? Thanks again for stopping by.

Hi, Carrrie,
I love your patio ~it looks like you have another room. Also love the baskets with apples painted on them. They are just so cute.

Renee said...

Hello doll, I wish you could share the cake with us too.

How about coughing up the recipe.

My big question is how the heck is your house so spotless with five children.

I have only my son and husband at home now and the house is a pigsty.

Love Renee xoxo
