Today’s post is a 6 x 6 recipe card that I made for a SWAP on SCS. This is the best recipe. The cake is delicious and anytime I take it to an event, I get people wanting the recipe, and get lots of compliments. I will put the recipe below, just in case it is too hard to read on the card. Try it, and let me know if you, too, enjoy it.

Apple Cake
Preheat oven at 350 degrees
3 cups flour 3 eggs
3 cups sugar 1 cup pecans
3 cups apples 1 tsp soda
1 tsp salt 1-1/2 cups oil
2 tsp cinnamon

This will be very thick. Place it in a bundt pan.
No need to grease & flour. Cook for 1 to 1-1/2

1 stick butter
1 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup milk
Boil two minutes. Pour over your baked cake.

Happy Stamping and Toota-Loo,

A whopping 42 degrees here today! We are in the beginning of a heat wave. Has to be! The past week or so has been teens and 20's, with a few single digits at night. We finally got a dusting of snow, but it was a bad dusting. There were numerous wrecks on highways, as well as heavily traveled roads. It was really slick. The winter is not my favorite time of year, but I am a firm believer that if it has to be cold, it should be snowing. Lots of people don’t agree with me, because it means traveling in the snow, and I can see that. But, I would like a big snow, a couple of days to look at it, and then a day or so for it to melt. Just saying. Today’s card, I’ve posted, is for a snowman swap on SCS. I haven’t actually mailed this card in yet. But, thought I would post it, just because I’ve mentioned snow above. Hope you like it! I think the kitty cat snowman is so cute. Enjoy your Sunday, and happy stamping! Karen
