Veggie Wednesday: The Forbidden Fruit

Apple season is one of my favorites and this is one of my favorite recipes to go with it, Nana's Apple Cake.

A bowl filled with the promise of good things to come.

Sliced apples in a 9x13 baking pan.

Butter cubed to help it soften quicker.

Sugar added.

Sugar and butter creamed together and eggs added to the mix.

Flour and baking powder tossed in.
A soft dough. Take note of the old silver fork - that's a must for mixing! Well, maybe not a must, but it works for me.

Sugar with freshly ground nutmeg (the only way I use it) and cinnamon.

Apples sprinkled with the cinnamon-nutmeg sugar.

Spoons of dough tops the apples.

Play 'connect-the-dots' and spread them over the apples. Even if it doesn't look like it will cover them all, or there are holes, don't you worry - it will bake together and be perfect. Top with more cinnamon-nutmeg sugar and...

Surprise! The final result and full recipe are at

That looks scrumptious, Anne. I have a bag of apples staring me down, so maybe I will give this a try this weekend!
