So, without further ado...........my bath mat is not done but almost! It's so bunched up on the circular cable I can't even really see if I've made mistakes but maybe that's good else I would have frogged it by now! LOL!
Also, I am in love with the Rowan cotton....gorgeous, doesn't split, in fact you wouldn't even know it was 100% cotton as compared with the "less expensive" variety which I used on my potholders. It's marvelous to work with.
I cast on the sock (1 of 2) again after frogging the last one. I need to watch the video again though before I start knitting. I guess it's hardly worth the photo? LOL!
Also, for my regular blogging buddies, I promised you the recipe for the Apple Kuchen yesterday and then didn't blog at all! Shame on me! Here's another picture for my YOP friends that don't read me during the week.............
This was an old Betty Crocker recipe popular back in the 60's...I told you I was old.....but the 60's were great both then and now! LOL!
1/2 C butter softened
1 package yellow cake mix
1/2 C flaked coconut
1 20 oz can pie sliced apples, well drained or 2 1/2 C sliced and pared baking apples
1/2 C sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 C dairy sour cream
2 egg yolks or 1 egg
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut butter into dry cake mix until crumbly. Mix in coconut. Pat mixture lightly into ungreased baking pan 9 x 13 x 2 inches building up slight edges. Bake for 10 minutes. Arrange apple slices on warm crust. Mix sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over apples. Mix the sour cream and the egg or egg yolks and drizzle over the apples. The topping will not completely cover the apples. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until edges are light brown. Do not overbake!
You can also try these variations:
Pear Kuchen: substitute 2 (16 oz) cans sliced pears , drained on paper towels, for the apples and a package of devils food cake mix or German Chocolate cake mix for the yellow cake mix.
Peach Kuchen: Substitute 1 (29 oz) can sliced peaches, drained on paper towels, for the apples and 1 package of white cake mix or sour cream white cake mix for the yellow cake mix.
What I like about this recipe is that I can keep these things on hand and the dairy and eggs I always have. I want to try substituting my own homemade cake mix and also yogurt for the sour cream but haven't done it yet.Well, I'm off to see what my Ravelry bloggers have been up to this week....it's very inspiring and humbling at the same time! LOL! Have a great week ahead and a peaceful happy Sunday!
