For my first experiment for a possibility for an entry for next year I used the Wind & Willow Caramel Apple- Cheeseball & Dessert Mix that I purchased from The Cooks Companion & More.(See pics below):
|These are the mixes I used to create this test recipe.|
|Use the real stuff, but if you are watching intake, you can use the other.|
|Before it becomes batter, it is like this.|
|Here is the batter, after well combining.|
|Into the loaf pan it goes before the oven .|
|This is the final result of the recipe, before I took it to the gals at The Cooks Companion & More.|
Here is the recipe for this test:
Caramel Apple Pound Cake:
One Caramel Apple Cheeseball &Dessert Mix
(from The Cooks Companion & More, on Muskogee Ave, Tahlequah,OK)
One Best Choice Box Pound Cake Mix
Two whole eggs
2/3 block of cream cheese
3/4 cup 2% lactose free milk
9x5x3 loaf pan
non-stick cooking spray
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Combine in a mixing bowl, the mixes, eggs,milk,and cream cheese. Once all well combined, pour into liberally sprayed loaf pan.
Insert into the preheated oven, and bake for 1 hour 15 minutes until golden brown. Once time is done, take out of oven , and poke with skewer, and if the skewer comes out clean, leave in pan to cool.
While cake is cooling quickly do the following:
Take one stick of butter and two tablespoons of sugar and apple pie spice in a microwave safe bowl or microwave safe coffee mug for about 45 seconds, and stir to combine.
While the cake is still warm, poke with skewer on top all over, and drizzle the above over the top, to let it soak into the cake and finish cooling. This will add some moisture. Serve with your favorite fall ice cream, or favorite warm fall beverage.
