Have your cake and eat it too! With Recipe!

Sunday night at sundown is when we observe the  Jewish Holiday Rosh Hashanah and we will be  busy celebrating. We wanted to take a moment to wish our Jewish friends an abundant, healthy and happy New the rest of you, HAPPY MONDAY!
Nope! No cat photo! Whaaat????  Don't worry your furry little heads! All things CATS will return on TUESDAY!! My Mom is an excellent COOK but normally wants no part of baking whatsoever!! She says she is severely "baking challenged" and has no patience for it.

Well...Mom was soooo proud of the apple cake that she baked to bring to my Auntie's house for the Jewish Holiday that she HAD to post it!

In case you would like the recipe:here it is!! (compliments of

Jewish Apple Cake


3 cups all-purpose flour (Mom used white all-purpose wheat flour)
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 and a 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 cups white sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup orange juice
2 teaspoons vanilla extract (use the GOOD stuff please!)
3 apples-peeled, cored and sliced (Mom used Granny Smith's)
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
5 teaspoons white sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) Grease and flour one 10 inch tube pan. Combine the ground cinnamon and 5 teaspoons of the sugar together and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking powder and 2 cups of the sugar. Stir in the vegetable oil, beaten eggs, orange juice and vanilla. Mix well.

Pour 1/2 of the batter into the prepared pan. Top with 1/2 of the sliced apples and sprinkle with 1/2 of the cinnamon sugar mixture. Pour the remaining batter over the top and layer the remaining sliced apples and cinnamon sugar.

Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 70 to 90 minutes. (Mom's was done in about 75 minutes!)

Enjoy! If you bake it, let us know!

Mom's looks's hope that it is  edible!!!

Love, Cody
