After a long, hot summer, Mother Nature has completely skipped fall and flung us straight into winter. Oh, fall - come back!
Hopefully this week's pick by Lynne of Honey Muffin will help. It's full of autumn flavors - apples, cinnamon, and ginger. It smelled delicious baking! I didn't have enough apple butter so I added some applesauce and yogurt. I omitted the nuts simply because I didn't have any, and wasn't feeling raisins. I don't have a bundt pan, so I halved the recipe and baked it in a loaf pan.
It's quite good, and super dense and moist. I think it'll be nice toasted with a little butter. I actually displayed some willpower and waited until the next day to dig in, as Dorie suggested, to let the flavors ripen. It seems to be missing a little something though. Maybe it's the nuts I left out.
