Yummy Recipes...Apple Chocolate Chip Cake

Fall is just around the corner...and that means apples around here. If you have 2-3 apples, some chocolate chips and your basic pantry are good to go for this recipe.
Apple Chocolate Chip Cake
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 3/4 (three quarters of a cup) oil (I use vegetable oil)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar (white granulated)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 (half a cup) chocolate chips
  • 3 cups sliced apples (2 large apples or 3 small apples, peeled)
  • In a small bowl: mix flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt; set aside
  • In large bowl: whisk oil, eggs, vanilla, sugar and chocolate chips
  • With wooden spoon, add flour mixture to wet mixture. It will be very thick!
  • Fold in sliced apples.
  • Spoon into greased bundt pan.
  • Bake at 325* for 1 hour.
Enjoy!! The only extra tid bit of info I have is...I tried frosting this cake in different ways. I've tried traditional frosting, chocolate ganache, icing, glaze etc, but my family just likes it plain. Try it plain first, then you decide.

This next recipe is fast and easy and great for parties.
Smores On A Stick!
This is all you need for this treat: chocolate chips, graham cracker crumbs, marshmallows and skewers.


Melt chocolate chips in the microwave. I used 50% power for a minute or so.

Skewer the marshmallow.

Dip in melted chocolate.

Then roll in graham cracker crumbs.

Refrigerate to harden chocolate, then enjoy the chilly version of the melted smores.

If you like the melty kind of smores without the campfire...I make these all summer for the girls and all their friends.
Oven Smores
On a cookie sheet, place desired number of graham cracker squares. On each cracker, place a square of a Hershey's chocolate bar and then a marshmallow (on it flat side). Bake in a 350* oven for about 5-8 minutes or until the marshmallow starts to puff. Keep an eye on them all the time. When they look puffy enough, remove from oven and place another square of graham cracker on each one. Push down slightly until you see the marshmallow ooze a little.
I know not the best directions with words like puffy and ooze and no pictures either, but give it a try anyway...they are fast, yummy and no marshmallows bursting into flames over the open campfire.
Hope you can try some of these recipes,
