The Cake:

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened

3/4 cup granulated sugar

2 eggs

1/2 cup cream

2 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon allspice

1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice 

1 pint apple butter

For the Glaze:

1 cup powdered sugar

3 tablespoons cream

Preheat the oven to 350 and butter a 9 X 5 loaf pan.

Cream together the butter and sugar. Add the eggs and cream. Beat until smooth.

In another bowl whisk together the flour and dry ingredients.

Add half of the flour mixture to the wet ingredients in the bowl. Beat and then add the rest of the flour mixture. Beat until just combined.

Stir in the apple butter until the batter is an even color. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.

Bake 55 minutes, checking the center with a toothpick for done-ness.

Let the cake cool and turn it out of the pan before glazing.

To make the glaze simply mix together the cream and powdered sugar until smooth. Drizzle the glaze over the top of the cake and let it run down the sides. Let the glaze set, slice, and serve


Twice Cooked Cabbage

Our garden cabbage has been exceptional this year. I canned sauerkraut and we had lots of rhuban sandwiches. We had lots of stir fries and Cole slaw. This was finally our last cabbage of the season and I decided to make a recipe I picked up from Katlyn’s Kitchen at . Recipe here

I used cheddar instead of mozzarella and baked my bacon, since I always bake bacon now. I put the casserole together in my copper chef pan to cut back on dirty dishes.

Turned out good. Follow link above to get original recipe.
