French Apple Cake, Homemade Creme Fraiche, My Stats


French Apple Cake-
I was looking around for an apple recipe to make with our left over wedding centerpiece apples. I saw another version of this French Apple Cake Recipe on a blog. I made this yesterday and it was so easy! You just make a simple batter (no mixer needed) and toss the apples in. It's very moist, and I did follow the suggestion- if you have no brandy triple the vanilla. Next time I might add a smidgen of cinnamon. I loosely covered wit parchment paper overnight, and it was super moist.

Homemade Creme Fraiche-
I decided to make some Creme Fraiche, after seeing ti listed with the apple cake. I used the recipe on the link below. I had made it years ago and it's really simple! Just heavy cream and sour cream (or buttermilk). Homemade Creme Fraiche If you've never had it think whipping cream meets cheese. It basically a tangy product that's great on top of, oh, French Apple Cake! Ooo la la, yeah baby! You can cook with it and it won't separate either. It's sitting as we speak.

My Stats-
I found this really fascinating. I get an email every week from the free Stat Counter program. It tracks who's looking at this blog. It's easy for me to forget that there's a LOT more people reading this than just my Google Friends, etc. 234 first time visits just this week! WOW, that's a lot to me :)

Oh, does that apple cake look good! I wonder if I could GF it. I will have to try... I meant to tell you that I like the prayer flags on your coop - may it bring good luck to your hens AND to you and the world! I have some to hang but haven't found the right spot or moment yet.

That cake is wonderful, I'll be making another one soon :) Prayer flags are cool. I studied Buddhism years ago...
