Patricia Davids here again. Apple picking season is upon us here in Kansas, typically July-October. Other states may start a little later, August or September through October, depending on the variety.
Skip the grocery store and head out to your local orchard or farmers market and do some baking with those fresh from the tree apples.
Throughout this apple harvest season I’ll be sharing some of my favorite fresh apple recipes.
2 cups apple (thinly sliced for pie)
1 cup flour
1 cup white sugar
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
¾ cup nuts
½ cup vegetable oil
Directions: Put all ingredients in above order together in a large bowl. Mix well with a spoon. Bake in an 8x8x1½ cake pan at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Serve with cream or a cream cheese frosting.
