Yummy Treat

I love to cook but I'm not much of a baker. I blame it on the fact that I'm a borderline failure at math and science and baking is much more rigid in terms of measurements and such than cooking. Anyhoo this is my newest favorite thing to bake. It's simple, easy and comes out delicious. It's not too sweet so it makes a nice morning quiet time treat or when paired with ice cream a delicious light dessert.

I found it off a blog I enjoy called Tammy's Recipes.

Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup milk (soy works!)
1 cup finely-chopped unpeeled apples

Topping

1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup softened butter (coconut oil in the Kless household)
1 teaspoon cinnamon

1. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

2. In another bowl, beat eggs until frothy. Mix in oil and milk.

3. Pour milk mixture into dry ingredients and stir. Fold in fruit.

4. Pour batter into a greased 8- or 9-inch square baking pan**.

5. Mix topping ingredients together and sprinkle over batter.

6. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes, until cake tests done in the middle.

So cool to read the live blogging from the March! So wish I could have been there. Working at the Crisis Pregnancy Center out here has sure given me a new heart to fight this battle. So encouraging to see others fighting too!
