What the Beck???

Apple-Walnut Pound Cake
Adapted from: Daisy Cakes by Kim Daisy
Lydia Inglett Publishing/starbooks biz (2014)

2 cups sugar
1.5 cups Canola Oil
3 eggs
3 cups white flour
1 teasp. baking soda
1 teasp. salt
1 1/2 teasp. cinnamon
1 Tablsp. vanilla extract
1 large Gala apple
1 large McIntosh apple
1 large Honey Crisp apple
1 1/3 cup walnuts
1 ¼ cups coconut

     Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 10-inch tube or Bundt pan.
    In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the sugar, oil, and eggs until well blended and yellowish in color. Set aside.
    Sift together the dry ingredients: flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Add the flour mixture and vanilla to the wet ingredients. The mixture will be very thick.
    Fold in the apples, walnuts, and coconut. Pour or spoon the batter into the tube or Bundt pan.
    Bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes.
    Let cool in the pan for 20 minutes before turning out onto the cake plate.  Serves 16 to 20 people.

 These are the ingredients that I used to make the cake

 First, I buttered and floured the Bundt pan.

 Dry ingredients were sifted together

Eggs, Canola, and sugar were whisked together next.

 I removed the peel and cores from the three types of apples

 A blurry 4 cups of mixed apples

 I then added the vanilla

 Lastly, I added the apples, walnuts, and coconut

 I used a spoon to put it in the Bundt Pan 
to keep it off of the sides of the pan.

 I left it in the pan for 20 min. to cool
before flipping it over on the plate

 I think the rounded edged Bundt pans 
are prettier than this square pan

This is one heck of a fabulous cake.  
It was moist and wonderful.

Have you seen this dog??

I was driving down Kirk Road and glanced
to my right at the Trellis store.
I had to go back, and take a picture of the dog
made of straw.  This is so cool!
How do you make something like this dog?
