I know, I know, I am a couple days late in posting this, but it was a very busy and hectic weekend.  Halloween is fun yet daunting all at the same time.
I did make this cake on Friday morning and had nothing but good intentions in posting on Friday. But, between pumpkin carving, an international pot luck at Eli’s middle school and making Friday night dinner, I ran out of time.  Then the weekend came…and went!
So, here I am, on Monday morning to tell you how much I love this cake. I have so many plans for this cake.  I want to make it again, this week (have tons of apples) and make them bite size.  I love bite size anything and I have a feeling that this cake would be great as little cakelettes!
Friday morning was wet and rainy.  As this cake baked in the oven, my house smelled so good. I could not wait to dig into it.  All I wanted to do was cut a huge slice, get under my favorite blanket and catch up on Oprah. But I held out.  I restrained.  I exercised my skills in will power.  Glad I waited.  I had some homemade caramel sauce in the fridge.  Drizzled a little warm caramel sauce over the cake and it was like eating a caramel apple.
I have committed or possibly over committed to French Friday’s with Dorie.  But, I love all things Dorie, so I am treating this like an education.  Some days you just don’t want to wake up and get up and go to class, but you really don’t have a choice in the matter.  I have made the commitment and I want to see it through.
I am anxiously waiting for the November “assignments” to come my way.  If anyone of you want to do this with me, I would welcome the company!  It’s fun and it forces you to do things you wouldn’t normally include in your weekly meal plans.  Come on, people, buy the book and let’s do this together!
Mmmmmmmmm.  Can’t wait until the next time I make this cake!
