  1. Yum yum! We loved this Kitten! I added nuts in with the apples. This brings breakfast at our house to a whole new level :)
  2. I started eating my first piece and knew I wasn't going to stop at one! The whole family loved this and asked me to put the recipe in a special place, so I guess you know it went over big time with all of us! I added nuts too and they really made it extra special!
  3. This was very easy to make. It was a hit when I brought it for a dinner party. Lots of cinnamon flavor. Perfect for fall
  4. This is delish. I added walnuts into both the cake and the crumb. My 1 1/2 yr old grandson needed his own piece, not satisfied with just small pieces and that was after already downing his own piece of cake. I broke up the batter into a round cake pan and 2 smaller pans to send some home with the grandchildren and my son texted me after dinner to say how awesome it was. Definitely a keeper.
  5. This was great. Looked and tasted like it took a lot of work but was not difficult to put together. I used a bit more of the sugar/cinnamon mixture because my apples were really tart. I added a bit of allspice and nutmeg to the mix just for fun (I can never leave seasonings alone). I served this along with a dessert/fruit spread for several friends and judging by the relative lack of leftovers, this was one of the most popular choices.
