How We Heat the House

My gas oven!

Well, not really but Colin sure notices the difference in temperature when I’m not home baking.  Today the house was chilly so I made some Peanut Butter Swirl bars from the Amish Cook Baking book (which I helped test recipes for).  Did they ever turn out yummy!  Though next time I think I’m going to put the chocolate chips on the inside.  Also need to cut smaller squares, they are quite rich.  I also made a new garlic roll recipe I found here.  They smell divine.  I’ve also made an apple cake.  It’s easy to throw together and makes a nice big bundt cake.  It’s also good use for those sad, end of winter apples I had sitting around.

Apple Cake

3 c flour                   1 c wt. sugar

1 1/2 t bk soda       1/2 t salt

1 t cinnamon           1/4 t allspice and nutmeg

1 c buttermilk          1/2 c butter, melted

1 egg                            2 c chopped apples

Mix the dry ingredients, then add the wet ingredients.  Gently stir in the apples last.  Pour into a greased bundt pan.

Bake 325F for 60 min or until done.
