Cherryvale Farms is a local company, here in Soquel. We have been thinking about carrying their products for awhile. We have tasted their baked goods, but never tried to bake them ourselves.
I woke up to a damp, foggy morning and the sound of gulls flying overhead, but a quiet house. It was a perfect morning to warm up the house, and some tummy's, by baking. I dug around in the pantry and found my Cherryvale Farms, Everything but the Apples mix. I had picked this up from Marsha Rosenberg at one of her vintage fairs.
Our pantry is rather bare, I haven't been grocery shopping lately. But the minimal ingredients called for were all on hand! (I did cheat. We only had one apple, so I stuck a banana in too!) The boy wandered into the kitchen as I was mixing it up. It was really simple and he enjoyed helping. We put it in the pan and baked it for the 20 minutes called for, then cooled for 3 more.
The smell wafting through the house had everyone in a good mood. Even my husband who was home preparing for a trip to the dentist. I served them with coffee and hot chocolate. Delicious! Julie, who was the last to wander out, thought I had made them from scratch. These are a keeper. I now can't imagine not having them in the kitchen cupboard. I can't wait to try their other products.
