Living an involuntary hermit's life. Working towards living a healthier, gluten-free, hopefully cancer free life with my 2 dogs, 3 chickens and loving family.

Living with intention

When stumbling through life isn't good enough anymore..... decide to be yourself and enjoy life, and pay attention to Gods gifts all around.

Apple Harvest Cake

I wanted to bake something different.  I had a box of spice cake mix so I looked on-line and found a recipe.  Of course I didn't follow it.  But used it for an idea.

I peeled, cored and sliced 3 small apples and put on bottom of 13x9 pan.  Sprinkled 1/3C brown sugar, dotted with about 5 or 6 tbs butter and sprinkled a couple handful of chopped walnuts.
Mixed the cake as directed but replaced oil with applesauce.  Poured over apple mixture.
Baked for about 40 minutes.  Let cool and turned it onto a long pan.

I could of make a powdered sugar glaze to drizzle over, but I had some caramel sauce in fridge, so I drizzled that on top and put a dollop of whipped cream on the individual slice.
This really is an Apple upside down cake.  It turned out great and was especially delicious when still warm.
