Fall is for Apples and Pumpkins

Fall is getting a good start in the mountains and the new crop of apples and Pumpkins are in. My brother brought me a box of fresh apples this week. I peeled and cooked them and made fried apple pies which we have enjoyed for the last few days. So delicious. Thought I would share a couple of our favorite recipes with you using apples and Pumpkins. The first is a fresh apple cake recipe I have had for close to 40 years but still one I am ask for the recipe every time I take it to a social. Be sure you try it and let me know how you like it.



OLD FASHION APPLE CAKE
1 cup salad oil ,

2 eggs
2 cups sugar

2 ½ cups cake flour
1 tsp. Soda

1 tsp salt
1 tsp. Cinnamon

1 tsp baking powder
1 cup pecans or walnuts

3 cups sour cooking apples,(chopped)
6 oz. Butterscotch chips
In a large bowl mix well, salad oil, eggs and sugar. Stir in dry ingredients.
Mixture will be stiff. Stir in apples and nuts. Press into a greased 9x13 inch
pan. Sprinkle butterscotch chips on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 55 to 60 min.
