October 2020 Newsletter

Hello friends,

It’s only been a couple of weeks since my last newsletter but I thought I’d kick it up to twice a month since I always seem to be forgetting something that I wanted to tell or share with you.

Hubby and I went apple picking… it’s a tradition that started with my mom. On a bright sunny day Mom would take me and my brothers. We’d load the trunk of the car with over-flowing wooden half bushel crates. Standing in an orchard brings back so many sweet memories. I have to be honest, I didn’t take my girls very often to pick apples. Life was so hectic when they were young but we did go to the orchard, buy a bag and get an apple cider donut so that counts right?

I wanted to share with you my Grandmother's Apple Pudding recipe, another family favorite.

Apple Pudding - Oven 350 for 30 minutes
In a 4 quart bowl, lightly greased add:
4-5 thinly sliced apples,
Sprinkle with 1/2 cup sugar and a dash of salt
Pour over 1/2 cup water
1/2 teaspoon of apple pie spice

1 cup flour
3 tea. baking powder
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg lightly beaten
1/2 cup milk
1 tea. vanilla
Mix well and pour over apple mixture.
Bake until toothpick comes out clean from the cake.
