I saw this delicious cake recipe in Maria's place The Goddess"s Kitchen.
I love the name of her blog and she has writtten A blog dedicated to perfecting the art and joy of baking and cooking by an aspiring domestic goddess!
Her place is raining with delicious baking goddies. Just like this Spiced Apple, Cranberry & Cider Cake
When I saw the cake I knew I was going to male them, but then I don't have the book she had written from were she got the recipe so I mailed her to ask her if she would be kind enough to send me the recipe and i think in a flash I got the recipe in my mail, whiwh I was so pleased and when I saw the ingridients , I was happy as I had all the ingridients here at home.
So this is what I made for sunday afternoon coffee. Ofcourse as it is sunday i took the cake to my inlaws place.
We all loved them.
I sreved with a dollop of freshly whipped cream.
