I used the above recipe and did the following changes:
1/3 or so cup of cranberries (I would add even more next time! yum!)
1 cup white sugar
1/4 cup vanilla sugar, big chunky sugar; raw sugar, also big chunky sugar about 1/3 cup or so, brown sugar about 1/3 cup a finer grain sugar; these sugars (the first 2) were mixed with the
slightly OVER 2 cups of apples sliced into chunks and the brown sugar mixed with the cranberries,
which were added after the other sugars mixed with the apples.
I added about 1/2 cup or so extra flour
about 1/3 to 1/2 extra of cinnamon and cloves
a bit of a heaping tsps of the baking soda
1 cup exactly of cold (in fridge for over 12 hours) (instant!) coffee
1 cup canola oil (or maybe just a hint more, it was added first).
fruit was added after the batter was mixed.
I sprinkled a bit of the raw sugar on the top of the cake.
The heart shaped tin was done first, about 35 minutes or so.
Round one last I think....
a nice cake, not too sweet.
I think I could of added even more cloves.
Maybe some ginger? (am thinking of my Koek recipe!)
It was really nice to do!
Well, it was a nice snow day.
Mr Husband worked from home.
Presanctified liturgy was cancelled because of the
weather and rescheduled for Friday.
I got books delivered today!
I have a lot to do...
I am grateful.
We still got the same old unbloggable stress
but God is helping us enjoy what we have each day
and trust Him for the rest.
I know we are very blessed!
God bless and help us all!
I know so many are suffering and I pray God's mercy
and deliverance for each!
