As a “welcome to fall” adventure, I went apple picking on September 22nd.
It was raining. And then misting. Which is not appropriate for the first day of fall.
I went with my donut-hounding cronies Annie and Betsy. (They love this picture. I just know it.)
Because people really just go to apple orchards for cider donuts. And pumpkins.
The next night Clarice and I made an apple spice bundt cake. With toffee bits. And extra apples. In a fancy bundt pan.
It was all very exciting. Until it wasn’t.
“Almost made it” is starting to sum up my baking life. But. I mean. Let’s be serious. It’s a lot more about how it tastes and not how it looks, so we cut that sucker up and brought it into our very grateful coworkers. And ate a piece (or two or three) ourselves.
What are you doing to welcome in fall? Pumpkin goodies are around the corner. mmm…
