This is a bonus #AppleWeek post because I didn't fit in a pie into this week...but I wanted to be sure and share my thoughts on the beautiful pie pan I received from one of the sponsors!  Thanks, Pyrex.


This is the 9-1/2" pie plate from Pyrex's Watercolor Collection. I have pie pans that are metal and pie pans that are ceramic, but I love using glass pie pans. I have two smaller ones, but this one is deep and perfect for piling in lots of filling. I can't wait to use it more as we get into baking season. 

Anyway, my oven isn't working right now, so I drove over to my parents' house to use theirs. When my mom saw the plate, she said, "I think I'm going to have to take that!" Ummmm...nope. It's mine. All mine.


Whenever I have a tons of apples, I make jars of applesauce to use throughout the winter in my baking adventures. While I love homemade applesauce so I can control the amount of sugar, use whatever you have on-hand.

Applesauce Cake

Ingredients
  • 1 C (2 sticks) butter, room temperature
  • 1 C organic dark brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1/2 C organic granulated sugar
  • 1/4 C honey
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 C chunky applesauce
  • 3 C flour
  • 2 t baking soda
  • 1 T ground cinnamon
  • 1 t ground cardamom
  • 1/2 t ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 t ground all-spice
  • 1/2 t ground ginger


Procedure

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and spices. Butter your pie pan and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and honey until lightened and fluffy. Add in the eggs and beat again. Stir in the applesauce.

Fold the dry ingredients into the applesauce mixture to form a thick batter. Spoon the batter into the buttered pan and smooth the top.

Bake until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean, approximately 50 to 60 minutes.

Cool on a wire rack for, at least, 10 minutes before slicing. 


You can serve this with a dusting of powdered sugar or a dollop of ice cream. We ate it just like this!
