Apple Picking Time

              It is apple picking time here and as luck would have it we have neighbors close by that have an organic apple orchard so a friend and I went picking apples.
                           So I wanted to try a new recipe for apples. I noticed today that Mennonite Girls Can Cook  had a recipe for French Apple Cake that sounded easy to make and not too sweet so I decided to give it a try.
                      The only change I made in the recipe was to add some cinnamon as I love cinnamon.
                                           It was quick and easy and very good.
                     It made a tasty treat with a pot of tea out on our sunny veranda this morning.

                                        Some pretty orange carnations for the table.

Thank you for joining me and if you would like the recipe pop over to Mennonite Girls Can Cook-you will be glad you did as they have lots of good recipes to try..

I am joining Bernideens Tea Time Blog for Open House today as well as French Country Cottage for Feathered nest Friday.

Take care,

Those girls really have a wonderful blog! I don't know if you have seen this movie, but I love the scene in the movie "Baby Boom" where Diane Kenton picks like 50 bushels of apples and says "that should be enough for a pie!"

Yours looks beautiful and I'm sure tasted even better!

Thanks for linking to Open House!

I really long for an apple pie when I look at your pictures. And this one with cinnamon is something I will make this weekend.
Hope you'll have a nice one.
Love Elzie
