Sour Cream Apple Cake with Walnuts



“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 ~


Sour Cream Apple Cake


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.

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!
