“Love has no desire but to fulfill itself. To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving.”
~ Kahlil Gibran ~
Good morning, sweet friends!
It’s 10 more days to Valentine’s Day ….. it’s also Day 2 of 14 Days of Valentine’s Day on my Facebook page
…. 14 days of LOVE ….. sweet recipes …. ROMANCE …. Valentine’s day ideas ….
I know there are skeptics out there that don’t believe in LOVE …. romance …. relationship …..
…. to them I say: “we all need to love something or someone to survive”
As Oscar Wilde once said: “Who, being loved is poor?”
When it comes to LOVE ….. I love to show it in many ways ….. one way is baking for my family & friends.
So, since I LOVE you, my sweet friends, but can’t bake for you I will share with you a special recipe for SOUR CREAM APPLE CAKE with WALNUTS that a dear friend of mine shared with me many, many years ago.
This SOUR CREAM APPLE CAKE is moist , crunchy & sweet & over the years became one of the favorite cake of my loved ones…..
….. especially when I serve it with big scoop of ice cream.
SOUR CREAM APPLE CAKE with WALNUTS
- 2 cups Flour
- 2 cups Brown Sugar
- 1/2 cup Butter (softened)
- 1 cup Walnuts (chopped)
- 2 tsp Cinnamon
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1 cup Sour Cream
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- 1 Egg
- 2 cups Apples (peeled and chopped)
STEP 1: Preheat oven to 350F.
STEP 2: In a large bowl combine flour and brown sugar. Cut in the butter and mix until crumbly. Stir in nuts.
STEP 3: Take 2 3/4cup of the mixture and press it into 9 x 13″ pan to make the bottom crust.
STEP 4: To the leftover mixture add cinnamon, baking soda, salt, sour cream, vanilla and egg. Mix it well. Stir in apples and spread the mixture over the crust.
STEP 5: Bake for about 30 minutes.
Tip: Sometimes when I want to make it extra special I frost the SOUR CREAM APPLE CAKE with Caramel Frosting and sprinkle with roasted walnuts.
Don’t forget …. Keep Smiling …. Keep Cooking!
