Lite Apple Cake
By: On: 09:25AM / Thursday October 14, 2010

 This is a recipe that was one of my favorites from my childhood. I can remember a segment on our local news channel at noon everyday where a guy name Mr. Food would create a recipe. My mom loved this portion of the show! Most of the things that he made were either not good, or sounded good but came out completely terrible. This is the one recipe that my mom made over and over of his, and since I am not an apple pie eater, this became the apple cake that she would make for me since I am not a fan of pie. The smells that float around my house from making this cake remind me of my childhood, and the recipe could not be simpler, but the outcome is amazing.

 

 

 

Ingredients:

2 medium apples, skins removed and diced

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup flour

1 egg beaten

1 tsp cinnamon 

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350.

In a bowl combine egg, vanilla, cinnamon, baking powder and sugar. Then gradually add flour, only stirring until everything is combined. The slowly add the apples, folding them in until combined. The batter is only enough to cover the apples, so don't be alarmed by the lack of excess batter. Pour mixture into a 9in pie pan, and cook for 30 mins. You can top this with whip cream, powdered sugar, or ice cream! DSCF2169

Who Doesn't Like a Boob Cake?

 Who wouldn't want to receive a boob cake for a special occasion?  This was my thought when I received one for my 21st birthday a couple of years ago. I had just started my catering business and had named it Gabriella's Goodies, which my best friend thought was hysterical because we are always joking about my breasts being my 'goodies'. So, she decided a boob cake was very fitting for the occasion, and I have to admit, after I got over the shock of my cake being boobies, I really loved it!

It's now two years later, and one of my good friends is celebrating his 40th birthday, so I thought, what better way to celebrate a big birthday than with a boob cake! This was the first one that I made, but it was so easy. I'm not the first one to make the boob cake, nor is the recipe homemade, but I think its a fun one to share anyway :)

Ingredients List

2 boxes of your favorite cake mix

2 oven safe bowls that are the same size and a good boobie shape

Hershey Kisses

Red food coloring

Buttercream frosting

Follow the instructions on the cake mix to create the batter. Spray your boob bowls with a non stick cooking spray so that they won't stick. Fill bowls 3/4 full. I found that its easier to remove them from the oven if you put the bowls on a baking sheet before placing them in the oven. (this will also help with clean up if the batter overflows the bowls) Once your oven is preheated to the temperature that's specified on the box mix, place baking sheet with bowls in the oven. (I had a little extra batter left over, so I actually made some cupcakes as well.) How long they will need to be in the oven will depend on how large your bowls are...mine took almost an hour. This is the only tough part about the process because you really do need to babysit them while they are in the oven. You can check to see if they are done periodically by inserting a knife or toothpick into the cake, if it comes out clean, then they are done. Once they are fully cooked, remove them from the oven and let them sit upright in the bowls for about 30 mins. After 30 mins, the bowls will still be hot, so be careful when handling them. Line a baking sheet with foil, and turn the bowls over. Let this sit for about an hour before trying to remove the cake from the bowls. Place each cake side by side with only a small gap (for proper boobie look), and make sure to let the cakes cool completely before frosting. Frost with the butter-cream, leaving some left over for dying pink. After the cakes are frosted put the remaining frosting in a bowl and use only a drop of the red food coloring to dye the frosting pink for the nipples. Place one unwrapped Hershey Kiss in the center of each cake, and then cover the kiss with the pink icing.

You now have a simple boob cake :)   35114_1549748302442_1197124973_1568596_515794_n
 (and maybe some A cup cupcakes as well)
