a crazy easy recipe & a sunrise

so here's the perfect recipe for Fall that won't make you feel guilty later
gather your ingredients
spice cake mix / orignal, unsweetened applesauce / vanilla extract or flavoring

pour the cake mix in a bowl

add jar of applesauce & a teaspoon or so of vanilla

mix together until it looks like this

pour into a loaf pan
 bake at 350 degrees for approx 28-30 minutes

if you want to get crazy with it you can make an icing while your cake cooks
you will need
reduced fat whipped cream cheese / a little splenda / vanilla / cinnamon / skim milk

mix approx 4 Tbs of cream cheese with 2 Tbs of splenda and a dash of vanilla
add just a splash of skim milk to make it creamy
you'll need the cinnamon at the very end

take your delicious bread out of the oven
(randomly placing it on a paper towel is clearly optional, but thanks husband)

serve right away

add your delish icing & sprinkle with cinnamon

i don't think you will be disappointed
and you will have consumed a yummy Fall treat that is pretty healthy...

this was the sight i witnessed as i waited for my man to get off work wednesday
i don't know that i've ever seen the sun's rays as distinct as they were that very early morning

it would have been perfect with a slice of spice cake & a cup of joe...


  1. ahhhhh!!! just lovely...both the sunrise AND spice cake. yummy...can't wait to try it :) by the way, you take such splendid pics, dear friend!

  2. What a fun cake, and the sunrise was WONDERFUL. I've never seen the rays like that, either. You are so fun, Molly. We miss you so.

  3. Yummo. I may try it...but if you read my blog post about my baking failure, you will understand why I can't promise success. So sad.

  4. As for the cake... I can confirm that is was simple to make and delish! Molly, that susrise is beautiful! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Um, yeah...I can't get that cake mix or vanilla extract here! It looks delicious and your pics are great. Happy Halloween!

  6. I made it without the icing and it was great!!!
