Caramel Apple Cake

Caramel Apple Cake

Tis the season for baking and baking with apples nonetheless!  I tried out this recipe yesterday and just had to share it with you all as it's the perfect warm treat to serve up on a cool fall day.  Let me know if you try it and what you think of it.  We love it here!  (Recipe is from my Taste of Home Baking Book).  Enjoy!


  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1-1/2 cups vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 cups chopped peeled apples
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans (Topping: 1/2 cup butter, 1/4 cup milk, 1 cup packed brown sugar and a pinch of salt)


  • In a large bowl, beat eggs until foamy; gradually add sugar. Blend in oil and vanilla. Combine flour, salt and baking soda; add to egg mixture. Stir in apples and pecans. Pour into a greased 10-in. tube pan; bake at 350° for 1-1/4 hours or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before inverting onto a serving plate.
  • In a small saucepan, combine topping ingredients. Bring to a boil; boil 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Slowly pour over warm cake (some topping will run down onto the serving plate.)

Fall Inspiration:Lovely Leaves

I'm so ready for some crisper weather here...(we're still stuck in the 80's!) I keep looking for fallen leaves on the ground or some sign that we're going to see fall soon. Sadly, I'm stuck to looking at photos and thinking up ways to create my own 'fallen' leaves. Some of my favorites for you--

1. When Autumn Leaves Start to Fall, 2. Fall(en) Leaf, 3. Fall Leaf

I think I'm also going to try making some crayon wax leaves today...have you ever done this? I'd be happy to know any tips or tricks you might have! I'm going to use this tutorial: V & Co.

Do you have any fall leaves on the ground yet? Love them or hate them? Do anything special with them? I'd love to hear!

September Sketch

I am sneaking in late...probably not making it for a Monday post...yikes! I spent the majority of the day without internet, except for the wee bits that I can see on my phone, and it's sad that it can just derail my entire day's plan! Am I alone in that?
Anyhow, popping in to give you the sketch we played with in the September gallery--I hope you can use it as a jumping off point for your own creations! I can see turning it on it's side or even completely upside down. I'd love to see what you make--link me up here or post it to the flickr gallery!

Favorites From the September Gallery

It's another beautiful gallery full of creative goodness! I spent some time over the weekend and selected my favorites, what are yours?

Such a fun kit to play around with this month and I love how everyone was able to come up with pages and projects that were so different from one another!

Happy Scrapping!

Back 2 School Photos

This morning,  Jenn's last post (and your comments) about what to do with birthday photos was front and center in my mind. That's because I was taking photos of my two oldest holding signs for first day of school. I've been doing this since my oldest went to preschool at age 3. Today, he was taking off to 6th grade. Not sure how much longer I'm going to be able to do this. Especially now that he's heading into the teen years, and gets embarrassed easily. But I did warn him that I'd be trying to do this until 12th grade.

As the bus drove off, and I came in with the camera, I started thinking about all these photos I've taken of the kids posing with a piece of paper (it says the school year each kid is in, the school name, the teacher's name, and the date), and what am I going to do with those.

So far, I've done one layout with some of the photos I've taken over the years.

I'm thinking I'll do three more to cover the years between this layout and high school graduation. Piggy-backing on Jenn's ideas, I was thinking that a mini-book with a page for each year, and info such as teacher's name, best friend, favorite subject would be a fun keepsake too.

Any other suggestions? Do you take photos of your kids' first day of school? Do you scrapbook them? Please share!
