A little yummy for your tummy

Happy Wednesday everyone!

As you know - we had a blog hop that made everyone crave for more - not only cute images - but a lot of tasty cakes. The DT girls made me so inspired so I got to bake an apple cake too. (We got tons of apples in our garden this year). You will find the recipe in the end of this post.

I coloured "Warm apple pie" with my copics to match the DP Eskimo Kisses Rooftop (yes - I am currently in love with this DP - that's why you've seen it a lot on my posts lately ;-)
I thought that I should create a more Winter scene for our cute Belle. That's why I did not want to add too many embellies - just leave the stage to Belle and the wonderful DP.
Added some dew drops, the sentiment and ribbon from SU + a heart charm.
I think Belle looks like an older version of Heidi and I could imagine her serving desserts after a Swiss fondue. What do you think of when you see her? Must say that I miss Switzerland. Used to live and work there for 2.5 years and Switzerland and Z├╝rich is forever in my heart. It's my second country in the world. And Swiss Fondue is def. something that we have every winter - love, love, love it! Will share my recipe of Swiss Fondue (that I got from my Swiss friends) another time.
Well- over to the recipe for the Apple Cake:

* 150 g of butter (melt)

* 2 egg (whip together with the sugar until it's white)
* 1 1/2 dl sugar

* 3 dl flour
* 1 teaspoon of baking powder (mix with the flour)

Mix everything together.

Poor it in your baking tin.

* Peel 3 - 4 apples and cut them into pieces.
* Mix 2 teaspoons of cinnamon with 2 table spoons of sugar.
* Roll the apple pieces in the cinnamon/sugar mix.
Decorate the cake with the apple pieces as you see fit.

Bake the cake in the oven at 175 degrees C for approx 30-40 minutes.
You'll see when it's ready :-)

I made it in my roasting pan (that is as large as the size of the oven). Therefore I had to multiply the recipe x 2.

Cut the cake and then it's ready to be eaten just as it is, together with vanilla sauce or with icecream. Your choice. Hope you like it.
