Fun Ladies + German Apple Cake = Great Night!

Happy Friday!!

Last night I had some friends over my apartment.  What a fun night!

Drinks

There was vino, Shipyard, and Slesh’s drink of the week – The Grape Cognac Cocktail.

And lots of yummy snacks to go alongside them!

Winner = Cristin’s spinach artichoke dip.  All natural from Stonewall Kitchen and she used all low-fat or fat-free ingredients.  Score!

Dinner

For dinner we ordered from Naked Pizza.  As you guys know from one of my first posts on Naked Pizza, I love it because it’s all natural and better for you than regular pizza.  Also, one of my friends has celiac disease and we wanted to make sure she could still join in the deliciousness with some yummy gluten-free options.

Note:  Cute Halloween plates.  Thanks Bridge!

Dessert

Remember in yesterday’s post when I said I baked an apple cake for dessert?

Here it is!  I got the recipe right off the Honey-Pot Hill Orchards flier I picked up when I went apple picking last weekend.

This recipe was really easy to make since pretty much all it takes is mixing everything together in a big bowl!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 cups chopped apples
  • 1 cup chopped nuts

Directions

  1. Mix all the above ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Bake in a 13 x 9 pan at 350 degrees for 45 – 55 minutes.  Recommended check in at 40 minutes.
  3. May frost if desired or cut into squares and serve with ice cream.

 

Really yummy.

Thanks ladies for coming over!
