dash salt

RECIPENAME: My Grandmother's Apple Cake Recipe
SUBMITTEDBY: okanaganlakebc.ca
COMMUNITY: Valley of the Sun
OTHERCOMMUNITY: This recipe is so delicious!!


Cake Mix
2 cups white all purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup margarine or butter
3/4 cup milk
currants (sprinkled on the bottom part of cake to your liking)
3-4 apples (or as many as will fit)
demerara (dark brown) sugar to your taste
nutmeg to your taste
salt to your taste


Custard Mix
2 medium eggs
3/4 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla (less or more to your taste)
1 or 2 teaspoons demerara (dark brown) sugar
nutmeg to your taste
salt to your taste


For the cake mix, stir flour, baking powder, salt, margarine, and milk to make a biscuit dough. Line 9"x13" pan with the biscuit dough spreading the sides high up the sides of the pan. Use a spoon to butter the biscuit dough inside the pan. Sprinkle currants and thinly sliced apples onto the biscuit dough. Sprinkle with demurara sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Bake at 350 degrees until crust is lightly brown, but light enough to go back in the oven to bake the custard until set .. about 1/2 hour.


For the custard mix, beat together 2 medium eggs in a cup and fill the rest of the cup with milk. Add 2 teaspoons vanilla, a speckle of salt, 1 or 2 teaspoons sugar, and nutmeg. Pour over cake and bake until custard sets .. about 15 minutes.

Serve warm or cold.  The demerara sugar is a more flavourful ingredient to this recipe (try not to use white sugar).

*Note* I will post a photo next time I make this cake.

RECIPENAME: German Chocolate Cake Topping
SUBMITTEDBY:  okanaganlakebc.ca
COMMUNITY: Valley of the Sun


1/2 cup cream
1/2 cup date sugar or rapadura or sucanat evaporated cane juice or rice syrup (I used demerara a dark brown cane sugar)
1 egg yolk
1/4 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
1/2 cup chopped pecans


In a medium saucepan, whisk the egg yolk into the cream. Stir in sweetener and vanilla, and add the lump of butter. Cook over medium heat until the butter melts and the mixture thickens, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, about 8-12 minutes. Remove from heat, add coconut and pecans, and beat with a wooden spoon until the frosting is of spreading consistency. Do not taste until it has cooled a bit, as the sweetener is very hot. This topping is for the Chocolate Wacky Cake (recipe next post). Serve warm or cold. Covers only 1/2 of a 9"x12" cake pan.  You will have to double the recipe if you are making the Chocolate Wacky cake in the next post.

I found this topping recipe on the net and it tastes really good.
