Ingredients:

  • 2 cups diced apple (approx. one large apple)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup canola oil (you can swap 1/2 of this for applesauce)
  • 1 heaping teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup powdered sugar (for the icing)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice (for the icing)

Apple Cake MixDirections:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl: sugar, brown sugar, flour, baking soda & cinnamon.
  3. Dice apple(s). Mix in with dry ingredients.
  4. Stir in oil and egg until well mixed.
  5. Put in a greased pan (I used a round 8 x 8 pan) & bake for 35 minutes.
  6. In a small bowl, mix the powdered sugar and lemon juice to make icing. It should have a squishy, not runny consistency.
  7. Using a spatula, scoop the icing into a plastic sandwich bag. Make a small cut in the corner of the bag & drizzle the icing on the cake.

Enjoy!

4 Ingredient Beer Bread

Tasty Beer BreadI’m a fan of cooking — if it’s easy. And, it doesn’t get much easier than 4 ingredient beer bread! This will only take you about 5 minutes to whip up. Plus, it’s super tasty! My Aunt Robin gets the credit for this, she gave me the recipe at my Bridal Shower (my mom had all the guests bring recipe cards for me and it was a total win!). So, without further ado, here you go.

Ingredients:IMG_0630

  1. 3 cups of flour
  2. 1 tsp baking powder
  3. 2 Tbs sugar
  4. 12 oz beer

Directions: Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Once mixed, put in a greased bread pan and bake for 50 minutes.

It’s so good warm with butter! And, the cool thing is, the taste varies with different beers.
