Two words…oh my.
No I’m sorry, three words…oh my my.
No wait, four words…oh my my my.
I am loving the flavors of the fall season. Quite frankly fall foods are getting me through the cold wet October we are having in the northeast. This weekend I was craving Gingerbread, so I made it and now it could be my most favorite cake ever.
Apple Gingerbread Cake
- 1/2 Cup brown sugar
- 1/2 Cup butter
- 1 tsp. Ginger
- 1 tsp. Cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 large egg
- 1 Cup Molasses
- 1 Cup Sour Milk – 1 cup milk with 1 Tbsp of white vinegar added to it. It will bubble and curdle, but that is okay.
- 2 Cups Flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 2 of your favorite baking apples. Peeled and cut into 8-10 slices. I used a apple slicer.
Mix the sugar, butter, ginger, cinnamon and salt until creamy. Add 1 large egg and beat until fluffy. Add molasses and sour milk. Mix well. Add flour and baking soda and mix until combined.
Prepare a 9 x 9 glass pan with non-stick baking spray. Layer the pan with the apples.
Homemade whipped cream
- 1 Cup cold heavy whipping cream
- 1 Tbsp. Confectioners sugar
- 1 tsp. Vanilla
With the wire attachment or beaters, gradually increase speed to high and whip the cream, sugar and vanilla until soft peaks form. It only takes a minute or two.
