apple cake

I don't know if it's the dark evenings, the cold weather or just that we have an abundance of apples (I mentioned them here) but I have a new desire to bake. I love cooking and always have but I've never been much of a cake maker. I was first spurred on by Anabelle's delicious looking French apple cake recipe, which I followed last weekend, unfortunately in our greediness I forgot to take photographs of my cake which was delicious but not quite as beautiful looking as Anabelle's. 

Then again this weekend I had the baking bug! I tried Alexis' recipe, as I was beating my batter I kept saying to D how I didn't think this was going to work, was my batter too stiff? Worry worry went my little head! But after the oven had cast it's magic it came out looking OK I think. Not quite like Alexis' but it's delicious and that's all that really matters.

So thank you Anabelle and Alexis for your yummy recipes!
