German Apple Cake at Rockledge Cottage

It was a very nice fall weekend at Rockledge Cottage.  We were invited to a Birthday party on Friday night but Marc came home sneezing and congested and just not feeling well. It was too bad but we had to stay at home and rest.  On Saturday we did go out for a little drive....
The leaves have changed colour on the trees and many apple trees are still full of apples but
they are really picking apples around the cottage. 

They have wooden crates and these nice plastic crates. 
The fruit bowl had fresh apples and on Saturday Marc was well enough to help make a German Apple Cake Recipe Here.
We dusted it with powdered sugar....

and had a delicious bite for dessert.  Yummy.  A cold glass of apple cider would have been delicious with the apple cake.  Next time we will try the recipe with 1/2 cup of applesauce replacing 1/2 the vegetable oil in the cake and we'll add some nuts. 

This is one of the things I DO like about Fall.  Hope you had a good weekend... Judi xoxo
