This cake got me in the door at the Hope Center for Neurological Disorders. please go to : http://hopecenter.wustl.edu
. Dr. Thomas A. Woolsey and Dr. Mark P. Goldberg both ate a piece of this cake I baked. If you go to the above website you will see both of these wonderful scientists and their amazing backgrounds. Both Tom and Mark listened carefully and with full attention to me when I presented the case for CCSVI. Dr. Goldberg let me present CCSVI in an open meeting. Ears were open and attentive. No scoffing from any neurologists. Hope does happen !!!!!!
Apple Spice Cake - From "Joy of Cooking", 1997 edition
This cake tastes spicier once it has cooled and rested for a couple of hours, but if you like your apple cake on the spicy side and enjoy eating it warm, increase all of the spices by just a pinch. We use tart green apples (Note from Jill : Granny Smith apples) with the skins left on.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour one 8 x 8 inch pan.
Whisk together thoroughly in a large bowl, pinching out any lumps in the brown sugar :
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, or a combination of all-purpose and whole-wheat flour
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
Add and stir together until smooth :
