3 med tart apples, peeled and cut into 1/4 in slices
3 tbsp of sugar for apples
1 cup sugar for cake
1 tsp cinnamon
2/3 cup softened butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups all purpose flour
1/8 tsp salt
In a large bowl combine apples with 3 tbsp of sugar and the cinnamon. Let sit on counter for one hour.
In a large mixing bowl mix the butter and 1 cup sugar together till creamy. Add the eggs one at a time then add your vanilla. Mix your salt into your flour then add to the butter mixture, Stir together. Add your apples along with 2 tsp of the juice from the bowl stir together well. Place in a greased bread pan and bake at 300 degrees for an hour and a half or till a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 10 minute before taking out of pan. Serve warm
1 cup powdered sugar
apple pie spice seasoning
Pour enough milk into your powdered sugar to make it the consistence of syrup. Sprinkle in your apple spice seasoning a little at a time till you get the flavor you like. I used about 1/4 to 1/2 a tsp. You can pour it over the warm cake or cut the cake in slices and pour over each slice. I poured it over the top of the cake. But the glaze was so good that next time I am pouring it over the cut slices.
Note: It smelled so good that we didn't wait the 10 minutes. The warm cake with the melted glaze was so good! It did try to fall apart a little when we cut it. But so worth it. After one time of making this it has become a family favorite.

for a little while more. We are home now but I am antsy as all get out. Don't get me wrong I am very proud of them. At 22 they are working and living on they own,paying they own bills. But it's still hard. One bright spot was the girls found ways to keep us there a little longer after things were unpacked. It let me know They would miss us as much as we will miss them.
This is so cool that I had to share it. The liner is a Styrofoam. Rick wants to try it just to see if it works. It would be great in the barn for the animals. Not to mention a bedroom.With the solar panel it would really save money especial here in California.

I also bought canning labels to place on the sides of the containers. The labels they give you are pretty much worthless since they are already printed with spices most of us don't use or very rarely use. The bonus is the case holding the containers makes great soap molds as you can see in the photo.
