Angels & Apples Cake

 Two simple ingredients = one simple and tasty cake! I saw this idea on Pinterest a while back where someone had made lemon bars using a box of Angel Food Cake and a can of Lemon Pie Filling. What a great idea!  I knew I had some apple pie filling and since my hubby's favorite pie is apple I thought I'd try to make an Apple-angel cake. When I put the can of pie filling in the mixer bowl with the dry cake mix I thought "man, this is never going to work. It's just cake dust. It will never mix together." Well, I just turned the mixer on low and let it go for a few minutes and it got all whipped up and fluffy just like angel food cake but with bits of apples and apple pie spices all throughout. It smells so good baking.

I don't know why but when I bake angel food cakes lately (like the last 2-3 yrs) they always fall. Maybe because I don't flip them over? This time I tried to flip it over and the whole cake fell out onto the cooling rack. Then when I flipped it back over into the cake pan it pulled away from the sides by probably and inch all around. Looks funny sitting there but still tastes just as good and won't be around long. My hubby ate 2 pieces shortly after it came out of the oven!

We've also had near record snow amounts this year which brings the moose down from the hills and mountains looking for food. We've had more moose in our yard and on our street in the last 2 months than in the whole 7 1/2 yrs we've been in this house. Last week we had one just outside our home office window eating the tender branches from my crab apple tree and lilacs. And last night when we got home from dinner there was one standing on top of the neighbors 4 1/2 ft tall snow pile.

He or she looks deceptively small with snow nearly up to the knees. It's as big as or bigger than our car!


  1. What a cool picture! That's something we don't see in our yard. The odd thing I saw was an otter running across our front yard with the neighbor's cat looking after it watching it run down the street.

    The apple anglefood cake sounds wonderful, that's a great idea!

  2. oh I'd love to see an otter, but it would be so out of place here! :)
