Homemade Apple Cake

Hello, Dear Ones and welcome to Foodie Friday hosted by our own famous one, Michael Lee at Designs by Gollum. Please go by and visit her today as she is hosting the most delicious day of the week!

I was craving something sweet and decided to bake a cake.

A fresh apple cake. See the little bits of apple in the cake?

Here...let me give you a bite...

Ummmm....now wasn't that so good?

My Mother always taught me to share! :)

Here's the recipe:

Apple Cake With Cream Cheese Frosting

1/2cup butter, melted
2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
4 Granny Smith apples, peeled and diced
1 cup chopped walnuts
Cream Cheese Frosting
Chopped walnuts (optional)

Stir together first 4 ingredients in a large bowl until blended. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients; add to butter mixture, stirring until blended. Stir in apple slices and 1 cup walnuts.
Spread into greased 13 x 9 inch pan.

Bake at 350' for 45 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Spread with Cream Cheese Frosting; sprinkle with toasted walnuts, it desired. Store in refrigerator. About 12 to 15 servings.

Now this dough will look thick like cookie dough, but don't be alarmed. It's supposed to be thick.

Cream Cheese Frosting

1 8oz. package cream cheese softened
3 Tbs. butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/8 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla

Beat cream cheese and 3 Tbsp. butter at medium speed with mixer until creamy. Gradually add 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar and 1/8 tsp. salt, beating until blended. Stir in vanilla. Spread over cake.


Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree

Don't sit under the apple tree
with anyone else but me
anyone else but me
anyone else but me
no no no
don't sit under the apple tree
with anyone else but me
'til I come marching home
don't go walking down lovers lane
with anyone else but me
anyone else but me
anyone else but me
no no no
don't go walking down lovers lane
with anyone else but me
'til I come marching home
I just got word from a guy who heard
from the guy next door to me
the girl he met just loved to pet
and fits you to a "T"
so don't sit under the apple tree
with anyone else but me
'til I come marching home
don't give out with those lips of yours
to anyone else but me
anyone else but me
anyone else but me
no no no
watch the girls on the foreign shores
you'll have to report to me
when you come marching home
you're on your own
when there is no phone and I can't keep tab on you
be fair to me I'll guarantee
this is one thing that I'll do
I won't sit under the apple tree
with anyone else but you
'til you come marching home
don't sit under the apple tree
with anyone else but me
I know the apple tree
is reserved for you and me
and I'll be true
'til you come marching home
