Whiskey Apple Cake

Yes whiskey is a theme in many dishes... and they part that makes in the recipe gets cooked out... It's my experience the other portions are laughed out usually.

Yes whiskey is a theme in many dishes… and they part that makes in the recipe gets cooked out… It’s my experience the other portions are laughed out usually.

This is a NEW recipe for me… I was looking for an old apple caramel cake recipe but couldn’t find it. I hit the internet of course… looking for a MOIST cake. I am really more of a “pie person” than a cake person. What I stumbled on was a “Brandy Apple Cake”. It sounded good but then I started doing what I often do… change it to my liking… food is art like that!

I had no brandy, but Crown sounded better anyway. I changed a few other things and well…. you’re not guarenteed it will come out good, however… It is DELICIOUS! Might be new fall Holiday Favorite. The kids liked it with out the Hard Sauce, Jason and I WITH! 

I buy home delivery organic fruits & veggies from “Milk & Honey Organics” and had so many apples to do something with… am I ever glad for that!

BTW… I decided when I started this VLOG, not to get “dressed up”… what ever i have on -make up or not… I would go with it. I might be rethinking that after this one, hahaaa

Fix you some coffee & enjoy!

About kimberly kelly

I have been in media my whole life, a decade of Morning Radio Shows & a decade of Hosting Television Shows both cable & affiliate. Food is a passion & after sharing this BLOG with viewers... it kinda' grew a life of it's own. Nothing fancy t's just me - sharing what generation(s) in my family & friends & those in travels along the way shared. Food is an expression of ones self and a humble offering to loved ones. One of the best expressions of love. You get "One Trip"... skimp on the material things in life, food is your lifeline though -never skimp on your food! Food can be a positive affect on your health, but also the power to make one feel love. I hope I can show you some of both. Growing & cooking outdoors, is a reminder where our food should come... the ground & not just a shelf.

    No, please dont get dressed up, you look great the way you are and besides, it would take away from the “being real” factor. The cake looks wonderful.
