I am a frugal person.
It is as much a part of me as my eyes are blue.
My grandparents grew up during the depression, and were very frugal. They took frugality and made it look like child’s play.
The very last memory I have of my Grandpa Teal is going over to his house around lunch time.
Grandpa was sitting at his small table with a bowl of beans.
Also sitting on the table was a jar of apple butter that I had made and given him.
He took his butter knife, stuck it straight down in the jar, pulled it out, and all that remained on the knife is what he spread on his piece of butterless bread.
It was that image that stayed in my mind as I made today’s TWD of Double Apple Bundt Cake that Lynn of Honey Muffin picked for us today.
As I poured the cup and a half of apple butter into my batter, I wondered how many pieces of bread it would cover for my grandpa.
This recipe called for raisins, and as you all know, raisins do not belong in baked goods.
I also really don’t care for nuts in my cake, so I substituted butterscotch chips.
Today I plan on glazing this with a simple powdered sugar glaze, but I’m going to make it with apple cider.
This is a perfect fall cake.
