Apples and cinnamon, scents of fall

Warm apple cake with cinnamon, candy apples from the County Fair, cooked apple topping on waffles, and, of course, apple pie.  Apples are a staple of the American dessert family.  A kitchen filled with their cooking aroma seems cozy and happy.  I have a tasty and easy cinnamon-apple dessert for these pre Thanksgiving and Christmas days.  It is also good as a side for a holiday breakfast.


What you need
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 eggs, beaten
2-3 ripe apples, peeled and chopped very fine
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon soda
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Sauce (recipe follows)

What you do
Cream the sugar and butter until light and fluffy,
add the eggs and beat well;  stir in the apples. Combine
       flour, salt, soda, cinnamon;  add to apple mixture.  Stir well 
to mix all ingredients.  
           Pour into a 9-inch glass pie dish that has been lightly greased.  
       Bake at 350 for 50 minutes.  Serve either warm or cold with
whipped cream, apple syrup, ice-cream or the
         sauce below.  8 servings.

What you need
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup half-and-half
1 1/2 teaspoons bourbon

What you do
Combine ingredients in a saucepan.
Cook over low heat stirring until sugar 
dissolves.  Pour over warm cake. Eat/enjoy.
