On this Mother's Day weekend it's all about the memories and family.

Here is a recipe that's been passed down from our family to yours.  It's not a gourmet recipe but it's a favorite of our family and part of our family history and we hope that you enjoy making memories around the kitchen table with a glass milk and apple cake.  Thank you MeeMaw, you taught each of us so much about love and life.  Happy Mother's Day to all!!

Rotten Apple Cake

4 eggs beaten till foamy - add 1 3/4 cup sugar and beat well - add 1 cup canola oil & 1 tsp vanilla - mix till well blended.  Add 2 cups sifted flour - 1 tsp soda, 1/4 tsp salt, 2 tsp cinnamon.  Then fold in 4 apples peeled and cubed & 1/2 cup chopped toasted nuts.  (I think MeeMaw used walnuts.)

Bake 350 degrees - 40 to 50 minutes in a greased 9"x13" pan.

Here's a photo of our apple cake appetizer straight from the Timbercliffe Cottage kitchen.
