One year we had 4 legitimate blizzards. The difference in a big snow and a blizzard are the winds blowing the snow and causing white outs. Somehow, I don't know for sure, but this felt like a blizzard. Time to get out Wives and Daughters, the Old Pride and Prejudice, Victoria and Albert and some of our other old English sagas that last forever--to wile away the long nights after you have been inside for 2 days. We also make our favorite goodies, so snow fall is also fattening. Sarah whips up a great dark chocolate hot chocolate which we are sometimes known to drink with whip cream and marshmallows. Too much fun on occasion is not necessarily evil!
Nobby Apple Cake--or Squirrel Nutkin Apple Cake as Joy so named it this week.
Cream butter and sugar. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Sift dry ingredients together and add into wet ingredients, mixing thoroughly. Fold in apples and nuts, bake in greased floured bundt pan for 40-45 minutes at 350.
Mix glaze ingredients, add water as needed to thin, add more sugar if too thin. Drizzle over cake.
Tastes best when warm or hot!
