Angry clouds, sheets of rain, morning coffee gone cold, umbrella gone missing, missed deadline, nothing but bills through the mail slot.  On days like these, there needs to be a reward for simply slogging through.  To which I give you the humble apple cake.  It's not going to win you any points with a nutritionist, or impress the serious foodies, but that's not what this is about. This is about staving off the chill and ennui of a dreary day.  This is about cozy. The house will smell like heaven. Those who live in it will thank you.  So will the neighbors, as cinnamon goodness wafts through open windows and permeates the damp evening air.

Fresh Apple Cake*

3 c. chopped tart apples
2 c. all-purpose flour
2 c. sugar
1 c. oil
3 eggs
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon

1.  Preheat oven to 325º.  Grease a bundt pan.  
2.  Place all ingredients in a large bowl.  Stir well.
3.  Pour batter into pan and bake for 1.5 hours.
4.  Cool in pan at least 10 minutes before removing.

This recipe looks simple and delicious. Am decking out house for the season. Might be nice to take a break with a strong cup of coffee, my journal and a substantial wedge of this wonderful cake. Thanks for sharing.
