Sweet Treats Saturday

We went picking apples a couple weeks ago. We went to Conant's in Etna. The picking was unbelievable! And we now have a lot of apples waiting to be used.

What do you do when you have a lot of apples and even more eggs? You bake! Or, rather, T gets tired of waiting for you to bake and does so himself...

He found this recipe in the newspaper that led me to the blog, Straight from the Farm. I haven't done much digging around yet, but what I have seen looks really yummy. The Old Fashioned Apple Dumplings looked easy to make from where I sat. They were mighty delicious, too!

He also made an Apple Bread. I'm not finding this one anywhere online (and I'm not sure where he got the recipe - it's a photocopy out of a cookbook but I have no idea which one), so I'm just going to share it.

Apple Bread
3 cups apples, cored, not peeled
3 cups flour
2 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/4 cups oil
4 eggs, slightly beaten
4 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cloves
1/2 tsp. baking powder
2/3 cup raisins or chopped dates
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 325. Grease 2 loaf pans, bottom only.

Mix all ingredients in a very large bowl. Pour into prepared pans. Bake 60-70 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

I'll admit I warmed this stuff up and topped it with ice cream. It satisfied the sweet tooth greatly.

That's all I have for sweet stuff this week!

Enjoy your kitchens!
