In Lieu of a Post- Take Two

I'll admit it- I check my "traffic stats" sometimes...often...daily...every few hours...OK I'M A STAT WHORE- DON'T JUDGE ME.


And for some reason, my "In Lieu of a Post" post comes up as being seen daily, which is weird, since there's not much to it except the recipe for my world famous Triple Fudge Kickass Brownies.

What alot of people DON'T know is that almost as yumlicious (according to those I feed every day) is my apple cake. In fact, the apple cake is almost universally requested more than the brownies, more than chocolate chip cookie bars, even more than apple pie- and I make a mean apple pie.

So, since I got nuthin' as far as anything funny or brilliant, and I haven't even had time to read the book I bought for my next book review, I can at least provide this-

Mama Dixon's Apple Cake

butter an 8 X 11 cake pan and preheat oven to 350

make topping and set aside-
2 tbsp butter, melted
1/2 c sugar
2 tbsp flour
1 tsp cinnamon
blend together till it's crumbly

in large mixing bowl stir together-
1 egg
1 c sugar
1/2 c butter, softened
1/2 c milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 c baking mix (I use Pioneer)

add 4 apples, peeled and chopped

spoon into pan, sprinkle with topping and bake for about 30 minutes

Serve warm, with vanilla ice cream if you desire undying gratitude out of your family, heated for 20 seconds in the microwave for breakfast as an extra guarantee of devotion.
