Fall is so much in the air..Probably because it IS fall now..
The weather has been cooler than expected so now the leaves are starting to turn..
That apple cake above is so good..
I like a loaf cake it's not too big..
And you know what? This is a sweet I enjoy.A sliver;)
I found the recipe on TIKTOK..Delish by Elmi.
In French..I have translated below..
The only things in bloom..Sedum..lots..Hydrangeas..zinnias..cosmos and marigolds..pots of annuals i.e. geraniums,lantanas..
Herbs still lovely..new crop of dill happening..
A rose here and there..
I wanted to start fall clean up and I DID ..:)
To everyone who thinks gardening is a watering can and snippers..LOL
I am still shovel pruning Annabelles.. I cut back the front of our home including it's surrounding gardens..I have the back and planters left but it still looks ok..this tooks 3 days..not full days..
Hard gardening 2-3 hrs max now..
I have spent some time painting during the previous wet chilly days..all the ones shown here are from Chris Petri tutorials on YouTube.
I love them.
I don't mind my Amish woman..my man..needs work..
The tutorials are free ..he does this out of love of watercolor and teaching.
If anyone out there wants to try:) This is a great way to learn.
So La Recette for this delicious cake..
150 grams of sugar
1 envelope of vanilla sugar
175 grams melted butter
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
200 grams flour
1/2 packet baking powder (ap 1 1/2 tsps)
2 apples peeled and cored then sliced
turbinado sugar on top before baking.
I added a touch of cardamom because we love it.
His instructions say bake 180C for 30-35 mins
So mine took ap 1 hr.I kid you not.
And it didn't get as dark as his and I was happier.
Well worth it..
To see the way he made it..
you can see here..I think it's important to see how he makes it..you will then know how to add the ingredients
It's just so perfect.
Through the yrs..apart from bookmarked cooking and baking books I have a file folder of tried and true desserts with many apple desserts clipped together with an Advil paper clip lol..
Anyone who inherits my recipes will have a headache:)
