Snow has fallen, yet it is indeed autumn in spirit. Apple cake has been baked three times in the last week or so. It is a recipe from a dear friend and calls for four cups of diced apples. When viewed in this light, one can offer it to family and friends at any hour of the day (lately, right before the dinner hour) and still feel content to eat 'cake'.
