Gooseberry Patch Recipe~ Fresh Apple Cake

 September E-letter 2009
I collect Gooseberry Patch Cookbooks~I just love them. This recipe is from my e-mail this month. I am going to make this today~thought I would share! It looks so good!

Fresh Apple Cake
From Our Favorite Harvest Recipes, this is a delicious treat any time of year. 

5 baking apples, cored, peeled and sliced
2 t. cinnamon
2-1/2 c. plus 5 T. sugar, divided
3 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 t. salt
4 eggs, beaten
1 c. oil
2 t. vanilla extract
1/3 c. orange juice
1-1/2 t. baking powder
1-1/2 t. baking soda

Toss apples with cinnamon and 5 tablespoons sugar; set aside. Mix remaining ingredients together; blend well. Pour 1/3 of the batter into a greased and floured 10" tube pan; layer with half of the apples. Repeat layers and pour remaining batter on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 hours, or until a toothpick inserted in the center removes clean. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes; invert tube pan and remove to cool completely. Frost with Brown Sugar Icing. Serves 12 to 15.

Brown Sugar Icing:

1/2 c. shortening
1 c. brown sugar packed
1/4 c. milk
2 c. powdered sugar 

Combine all ingredients and blend until smooth.

I got that same e-letter. I thought about making it myself but I will wait for your results first. But it's GBP so it's gotta be good though.
