Farmers Market Frenzy

I love going to farmers markets.....We have many here where I live.   My favorite one is in our old village on Saturdays....they have live music, fruit and veggies aplenty and lots of great homemade foods and kettle corn...and plenty of organic to choose from.  I encourage you to support your local farmers markets if you have any....

Fresh Apple Cake

Hi Ladies, Our church has a bake auction once a year and this cake I make always gets one of the highest bids...$85.00 to $100.00.....I have never had one apple loving person to not like this delicious mouth watering cake. It's moist with a creamy topping. I gave my friend this recipe and her family went crazy over she always makes a few extra in the fall and freezes them, that way they are already made for when company comes.....I hope you like it as much as we do....♥

Apricot Nectar Cake

 My mother would make this cake when family would come to town.  It has mostly a lemon flavor, very moist and oh so good.  It is better served at room temp and not warm. I hope you enjoy this cake as much as we do....
