Picking Apples. And Pumpkins. And Donuts.

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…

    That looks delicious… the extra apples probably caused the batter to be a bit wetter and therefore not bake just perfectly. I’m an expert in baking all things, if you couldn’t tell… I’ll get off my soapbox now.
