Thank you all for participating!! I think a great recipe is one of the best little gifts you can give!
If you like (it's not "required"), you can add a link back to this page so your readers can join in our little recipe exchange, too! You can try copying the graphic below. It might work. Y'all know my computer skills are greatly lacking. Speaking of which, many thanks to Aris at inlinkz for fixin', which means correcting - if you're not from around here, my spacing problem from last week!
I didn't even have to ask! Wasn't that nice?! Thanks, Aris!

Many thanks to Mub, Susieloulou, EmilySnoWhite, and Heather 
for linking up last week! You'll find lots of great recipes on their blogs. Be sure to pay them a visit!
I am going to start today by posting a recipe that my friend, Wayne, emailed to me last week. Wayne is a very lucky man! His wife, Barbara, is a terrific cook! Wayne is a great cook, too! Thanks for sharing this, Wayne. I have already bought the apples and am looking forward to making this cake over the weekend! I can't wait to try it!
Fresh Apple Cake 
~ By Nettie Mae Carter Gaillard and passed on to Barbara Carter

Connie...I may have sent this one before...if not, I think you're going to love it.  I'm attaching a picture of what's left of a recent fresh apple cake.  By tomorrow night even the crumbs will have disappeared...it's that good.

1¼ Cups Cooking Oil
2 Cups Sugar
2 Eggs
2½ Cups S.R. Flour
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup chopped nuts
3 baking apples (Granny Smith), peeled, cored and chunked

Prepare apples and chopped nuts then set aside.
Combine the first five ingredients then incorporate the apples and nuts into the mixture.
Bake at 325 degrees in an oblong pan 9 X 13, until cake is golden brown and top slightly crisp.

Heat to dissolve:
1 stick oleo or butter
cup brown sugar
2 tbsp. milk

Bring to boil, then add:
¾ cup sifted powered sugar

Once all is blended, pour over warm cake, allowing cake to cool…glaze will harden.  Serve from pan.

Join the fun by adding you link, posting your recipe in the comment section below, or emailing your recipe to me at 
Thanks for participating!
Best wishes for a wonderful weekend to all!
God bless!
