TWD: Apple Nut Muffin Cake

This week's Tuesdays with Dorie is the Apple Nut Muffin Cake. Take all the ingredients of a fall muffin (chopped apples, nuts, raisins) and dump the whole batter into an 8 by 8 pan instead of muffin tins. I liked the flavor of the almond extract mixed with fresh fruit and nuts. This recipe was exceptionally easy because the stick of butter is melted and cooled (i.e. no waiting for the butter to come to room temp) and the ingredients are hand mixed in a bowl so there is no mixer to clean. This is the perfect post-apple picking snack. We had nibbles for breakfast and afternoon snacks. Visit Katrina's blog, Baking and Boys, for the entire recipe. I really enjoy Katrina's blog because she often writes about the joys of cooking for and feeding her sons, which is near and dear to my heart.
