 Gazpacho is a Spanish classic, best made when juicy tomatoes are in season.

This delicious cinnamon apple cake is moist and very aromatic when baking. (The recipe works particularly well in a Heritage bundt pan.)

Ingredients

  • 3 large eggs                                
  • 1 ¾ cups sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups flour, plus more for the pan
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups sliced apples, peeled, and cored (I used 2 large Granny Smith)
  • 1 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped and lightly toasted

Directions

Heat the oven to 350 degrees.

Beat eggs and sugar together for at least 2 minutes. With the mixer running, add the oil in slow, steady stream.

In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Then add to the egg mixture. Add vanilla, and then fold in the apples and nuts.

Pour batter into greased and floured bundt pan. Bake in the oven for 40-50 minutes.

Old Fashioned Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Old Fashioned Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
