Apple Cake


Last Thursday was just like any other at work - until our IT guy came in to the office and told us that the computer networks had all crashed and that we would not be able to sign on to our computers the next day. I immediately asked my wonderful program director if I could take Friday off as I didn't have any meetings scheduled with students and wouldn't it be great if I could use that work time wisely by baking an apple cake at home instead? Katherine agreed and let me use a random vacation day to chill out at home. Many thanks to http://justaplanerideaway.blogspot.com for the wonderful foodie links on her blog which lead me to Smitten Kitchen. I have recently recently become obsessed with this blog (http://smittenkitchen.com/) and have had no end of fun imagining menus for the dinner party I will be having sometime in the coming weeks. One dessert in particular struck me as fairly manageable and fun. I am speaking, of course, of the apple cake!









It was delicious! One complaint I have about being single is that making full out dinners and desserts feels like a collossal waste of time, since you're really only cooking for one. Thankfully, I had a friend over that night and I was able to take the leftovers to my family the next day, who all smacked their lips and paid me millions of compliments. ya!

Oh, you made this! I cannot tell you how many recipes I have bookmarked from that site. Well done! And yes, isn't it better to share your talents? That way you can get on with other delicious treats. Another tip, though you still might want to give away half your batch, is to freeze individual servings for those days when you need a little pick-me-up :-)

Just a plabe ride away: I think I am going to do just that! I had friends over last weekend for home made pizza - I still have to post those pictures, but I used Smitten Kitchen's recipe again and it was fabulous!
