I can't write tonight because I'm making this. It's far more labor intensive than the usual easier-than-pie cake mixes.

By the way, why is the phrase "easier than pie" supposed to imply the ease of a thing? Obviously that person has never made pie because it's a real pain in the tush. Especially if you're making a homemade crust. Or an apple pie with all that peeling and slicing. Unless they mean eating it is easy. That I'll agree with.

Also putting a kink in my project tonight is my scary mixer. It's not really that old but when I turn it on, it makes this awful metallic clanging sound and I'm frightened that the top that covers the motor will explode off and the sharp metal pieces of shrapnel will shred me to bits. So I'm using a hand mixer where a stand mixer is called for and even though there isn't really any time difference, it's more work because now instead of standing and watching the mixer do the work, I have to hold the hand mixer while it does the work. I'm exhausted just thinking about it. So I have high expectations that this recipe needs to be scrumptious.

I'm only in the baking stage right now, there are cooling, forking, drizzling and frosting stages also so I'll be up all night.

I'll let you know how it comes out at probably 1 am or so.


  1. And low cal...!Looks delicious!

  2. I'll be over tomorrow and get a piece.

  3. I'm going to try the skillet apple cake this weekend.
