Happy Birthday Zimmie

Wooooo Everyone.... Well, we are already bringing in 2008 on the right paw!!! Ha rooo (Amber, I hope you liked that.) Grab a piece of Apple Cake and help me celebrate a special event today. It is my Zim's 8th Birthday. I sure hope he has a great and blessed day with his brother, sisters, mom & dad. He is such a special red-head to me and I wish him 8 more years (at least)!

Oh, I almost forgot, per Lorenza's request, here is the recipe for my mom's Apple Cake (you can see step by step picture cooking instructions here):

3 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 cups of self rising flour
1 ½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 ½ teaspoon nutmeg
1 ½ teaspoon cinnamon
3 cups chopped apples (chopped in medium-small chunks, not diced)
¾ cup chopped nuts (optional)

Using blender – cream first four ingredients (eggs, sugar, vanilla, flour). Add dry ingredients and stir well. The mixture is going to be very stiff – You will think you need to add water or something… but trust me - don't (the apples will create the moisture for you). Mix in apples and nuts (Mom had to do this with her hands). Bake in a greased and floured bundt pan (again, she used her hands to put the mixture into the pan and press it down) at 325 degrees for 1 ½ hour

So, get your human up and get her/him in the kitchen to make you an Apple Cake!!!

Happy Birthday my Zimmie! I hope you have a great day AND get your very own Cup of Joe!
Sitka (Tia says Happy Meow as well)
