There are wonderful vendors at Apple Hill who sell handmade items. Couldn't resist this wooden basket made from old barn boards. The gentleman who makes these hand forges the iron braces and the handle. The basket is just so unique and sturdily built, and a super bargain at $35!
I'm leaving you with a delicious carmel apple cake recipe that we always enjoy every fall during apple season:
Carmel Apple Cake
1 cup oil
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
Sift together and add:
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups diced raw apples
1 cup nuts (optional - we don't use)
Pour into a 9 X 13 inch pan and bake at 300 degrees for 50 - 60 minutes.
Melt 1/2 cup butter and stir in 1 cup brown sugar, and blend well.
Add 1/4 cup heavy cream and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
Take off stove and cool slightly and add 1 teaspoon vanilla.
Spread over warm cake and enjoy with hot coffee!
Hope you are enjoying your Sunday and have time to get a few stitches in - thanks for stopping by!
