AN APPLE A DAY....

keeps the Doctor away...
ESPECIALLY 
when they are in a delightful and delicious
APPLE FRITTER CAKE
You can go HERE for this delightful recipe.
My Grandpa Jackson used to sit on my momma's front porch and
peel his apple
and that peeling came off in
ONE LONG PIECE....
I tried and tried and tried
but I never could do that.
I DID IT TODAY !
O yeah...I'm the woman ! 
 MY cake looks different from HER cake because
I am such a 
SEMI-HOMEMADE GIRL.
I used frozen rolls...
let them rise...
smashed 'em flat...
put the apples and goody stuff on each one.
I then placed them all in a RED loaf pan

...turns out it is a LOT like
APPLE FRITTER PULL APART BREAD..


MIGHTY
GOOD... 
and may I just say
O HONEY
NOTE:
when I make them again, (i say THEM because I will make TWO next time)
I will find a way to cut down the sugar a bit as they are pretty sweet and,
don'tchaknow this would be fantastic with PECANS or WALNUTS....
Very good and I will have a big piece of it
along with big, ripe strawberries
in the morning for breakfast...
along with four   A cup of DUNKIN DONUTS COFFEE..
YES MA'AM  !!

Looks great BJ, I'm having a bit of an apple craving! You go girl on keeping the apple peel in one piece-have fun:@)

Dearest BJ,

So great to see a 'golden' lady blogging! Just found you and follow.
Neither could I ever peel in one length an apple... bad luck I guess. But this recipe looks yummy.
Have a great remainder of the week and just have a look at my posts...

Love,

Mariette

It looks amazing. I've never tried to peel an apple in one spiral myself. I'll wait for September.

There are the handsome grandsons. What was I thinking. You just posted about the one getting married. I am a little slow......must be the heat.
Now that looks yummy but won't be able to eat that one. (((((HUGS))))

BJ,
Those grands are such a glamorus and handsome group! No wonder you smile all the time!!! If this Apple Fritter had pecans on the top..."Mr. Ed" would be drooling! Ha! I'm thrilled you were able to peel the apple "all in one piece"...you are the woman!
Fondly,
Pat

Oh what yumness! If I had been within smelling distance -- I'd have been right over with my coffee cup in hand.

Pondside said...

Oh my dear - you are going to be solely responsible for my going up a dress size at this rate! This looks so good and I will definitely make it with the frozen rolls - especially at this time of year!

Lisa @ Flour Me With Love said...

Wow, your bread looks wonderful! I'm so happy you enjoyed the recipe as much as our family does :) I made another one tonight because the kids were begging for it, lol. Thank you so much for the kind comments and referencing my site; it is greatly appreciated!

Bunny Jean said...

Yummy! Why can't I wake up in the morning with that waiting for me?

Debbie said...

It looks completely yummy. I used to try to peel apples in one long piece. Around these parts, we threw them out the window, and in the morning they were supposed to be in the initial of our one true love.

It never worked for me since it's nearly impossible for an apple skin to make an "R".

Emily said...

Your goodie posts are sooooo bad for my diet and sooooo good for Saturday morning breakfast. This is a keeper, I like how you make it easy with the rolls. I can just taste it now with my duncan coffee (I'm hooked on that coffee like you). My mister will send his thanks to your Saturday..........
