My Old Stuff - Kit #1!

The Great Scrap Room transformation of 2010 caused me to go through every inch of my scrappy stash. Wow, that's a lot of stuff! ::blush::

I have too much. There, I've admitted it! So how do we handle this dilemma? Well, I give some of my stuff to YOU, of course! It's a win-win, really. You get some of my older (but still awesome!) product and I make some room on my shelves. For more product. Wait a minute...

Let's not get too far ahead of ourselves. ;-)

Over the next few months (I am ashamed to tell you exactly how many of these kits there are...) I will be giving away kits of goodies. This month, for this Autumn-friendly September Kit, I want you to leave a comment and give me a recipe for your favorite apple dish. As I mentioned in the previous post we have an abundance of crisp apples and I live for this time of year just for the apple recipes alone. I will eat them ten ways from Sunday and not be tired of them.

The kit includes products from My Mind's Eye, Cosmo Cricket, Die Cuts With a View, Creative Imaginations, Daisy D's, Heidi Swapp and more.

So copy and paste a favorite... or link me up to something you found online... just give me a reason to get in the kitchen by Friday!

One lucky winner will be drawn to win the kit!

**Please, I can only pay shipping to winners from the continental US!**

You're too sweet!
The link for the apple recipe didn't post the first time, so I'll try again! I made this for the first time on Saturday, and it disappeared quickly! It's really quite versatile, too :)

I love this apple cake, so moist and apple-y. Ive tried it with a ton of different types of apples and they are all good. I don't use the nuts though.

Mom’s Apple Cake

6 apples, Mom uses McIntosh apples
1 tablespoon cinnamon
5 tablespoons sugar

2 3/4 cups flour, sifted
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup orange juice
2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
4 eggs
1 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a tube pan. Peel, core and chop apples into chunks. Toss with cinnamon and sugar and set aside.

Stir together flour, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together oil, orange juice, sugar and vanilla. Mix wet ingredients into the dry ones, then add eggs, one at a time. Scrape down the bowl to ensure all ingredients are incorporated.

Pour half of batter into prepared pan. Spread half of apples over it. Pour the remaining batter over the apples and arrange the remaining apples on top. Bake for about 1 1/2 hours, or until a tester comes out clean.

I have the best recipe for apple cobbler with coconut form my mom...but it's in storage & she can't find hers either! So instead, I'll share this one, which is almost as delicious. :)

Ok that brown die cut paper is too gorgeous. ;) I found a couple of fun-sounding apple cupcake recipes. (No, I don't bake because I can't eat sugar, but the internet is my friend!)


(Food Network)

And these look just like caramel apples! But since it's from the cupcake blog I'm guessing you already know about them...

Missy said...

what a great idea! It is a win-win!! Here in the south we love some apple fritters! Here's a link to Paula Deen's recipe

Apple Brownies -- do you have a recipe for that? Swedish Apple Pie? Let me know -- no need to put me in the drawing, but two cherished apple recipes. A wonderful salad with your favorite greens, sliced fresh apple, gargonzola, sugared pecans/walnuts, splash of cranberries (or dried blueberries), and a maple balsamic dressing? Let me know and I'll share! After you eat all this yummilicious stuff check out my blog!

While there (cuz I know you'll go!) notice my followers pictures don't pop up --- any idea why?

Very sweet of you Jess to have this giveaway. My daughter in law makes this cake and it is totally awesome.

Apple German Cake


* 2 eggs
* 1 cup vegetable oil
* 2 cups white sugar
* 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 2 cups all-purpose flour
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 4 cups apples - peeled, cored and diced


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour one 9x13 inch cake pan.
2. In a mixing bowl; beat oil and eggs with an electric mixer until creamy. Add the sugar and vanilla and beat well.
3. Combine the flour salt, baking soda, and ground cinnamon together in a bowl. Slowly add this mixture to the egg mixture and mix until combined. The batter will be very thick. Fold in the apples by hand using a wooden spoon. Spread batter into the prepared pan.
4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 45 minutes or until cake tests done. Let cake cool on a wire rack. Once cake is cool serve with a dusting of confectioners' sugar or with a Cream Cheese Frosting.
