Easy Apple Cake

So, the boys are at another house for their football worship.  Yay!!!!  But my husband begged me to pleasepleaseplease fix something he could take because the lady of that house is not known for her hospitality.  Big screen TV and lots of places to sit and be comfy, but that’s it.

I fixed the sausage balls I have earlier posted under football food and this apple cake.  Again, it is Saturday.  It is Keep it simple and easy day.  It uses a boxed mix and canned pie filling – the only time I use those items are for this cake.  The recipe was given to my grandma Ninny and it has been eaten many times, through the years.  Moist, spicy, easy, good snack cake, excellent gamer food or to take to munch on when you go Autumn Leaf Watching…a keeper.

Easy Apple Cake
1 box spice cake mix
1 21 oz. can apple pie filling
2 eggs or, equivalent in egg substitute
3 tbs. sugar
1 tbs. cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped nuts, optional

Preheat oven to 350. In large bowl, beat eggs well. Add apple pie mix and stir. Add spice cake mix and nuts and gently stir until well mixed. In 9×13 greased baking dish, spoon in half of mixture. Top with half of sugar/cinnamon mixture. Spoon rest of cake mixture over and then top with rest of sugar/cinnamon. Bake for 32 – 40 minutes, until done – a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow to cook and cut into squares. if you like, you can mix up a bit of frosting made with confectioner’s sugar, butter, and cinnamon and drizzle on top. Good, but not needed.

        My Great grandmother was from Germany. She was forever cooking and baking practically to the end of her days. In Germany, as she told it, they have every form of baked desert known to man–except for pie, which for some reason is considered vulgar; I know not why.

      BTW, I am in a state of befuddlement….I have misplaced my slide rule (yes and that means I belong to your peculiar group of friends – i have a couple of dandy calculators but the slide rule never fails me) and I can’t get the link to work…..if you want to check out my fried chicken, the post is: Simple Sunday Dinner – Carnal Pudding and Fried Chicken. I dare you.

        An online slide-rule? There is something Ironic about that. I have several of the old variety. They never fail me. They seem never to run out of power nor require wifi, as far as I can tell, and not one of them, thus far, not one, has asked me if I wanted to update it before using it.

      My father had Germanic roots. His mom never made pies but I think it was because the crust was beyond her. My mother’s applie pie is to die for – light flaky crust with spices in it as well as filling…Mama’s family was on the “mad celt” end – odd mix of Irish, Danes (from the time when they held sway in Dublin), and English. They migrated to the new world in the late 1600’s and settled on the coast of NC. and thus generations of eccentric southern folk were spawned. portions of a land grant from King Charles III are still held by the family. > Date: Thu, 17 Oct 2013 15:55:57 +0000 > To: thspencer51@hotmail.com >
