Secret Recipe Club~Apple Cake!

This is my second post for The Secret Recipe Club! I am really enjoying the club, and I love getting to see all the different blogs and recipes out there. So much talent and creativity!!. This month I was assigned the blog called Simply.Food. It is a wonderful blog full of delightful recipes from a vegetarian kitchen. The recipe I chose is Apple Cake. I love apples in all types of recipes, and I thought it might be appropriate for the fall.
Apple Cake
(This recipe was written in grams on the web site.
I think I converted correctly)
2 cups Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 cup Sugar
2 Granny Smith Apples
1 short cup of Milk( 7.337 oz)
2 tablespoons Plain Yogurt
5 1/2 ounces of Butter
2 Eggs
Place the flour, baking soda, baking powder and
cinnamon in a bowl and whisk together.
Peel your apples.
Core your apples.
Grate your apples.
In a mixing bowl add sugar, eggs,
milk, and yogurt. Mix lightly.
Stir the grates apples into the egg mixture.
Gently fold the egg and apple mix into the flour mix.
Be careful not to over mix.
Spray your pan with pan spray and cover with flour.
You can put a parchment liner in the pan if you want.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
Check with a skewer to make sure it is done.
When the cake is done, remove it from the oven
and let it cool on a rack.
When it first begins to cool, take a knife around the
edge of the pan to loosen the cake.
Let cool for 15 minutes.
Remove cake from pan.
Dust cake with powdered sugar.

Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.

Baked Apples & Brie

This weeks wrapped appetizer is a rich and tasty slice of heaven. Baked Granny Smith apples with just a hint of crispness, a bit of butter and brown sugar, creamy brie cheese, enveloped in ten layers of ultra thin fillo dough swept with sweet butter, and warm Italian loaf bread pieces. What could be better?!
1 Granny Smith Apple
1 stick Butter, divided
1/2 Brie Wheel
Fillo Dough
Loaf of Italian Bread
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
Slice the apple in half, and then in half again. Slice each quarter
into slices.
Put the sliced apples, 2 tablespoons of butter, and
brown sugar in a baking dish. Bake at 325 degrees
for 15 minutes.
Melt the rest of your butter. Set up your work area so
you can work quickly. You don't want the fillo dough
to dry out. I cut the fillo dough in half to make it the right size.
Cover the sheets in plastic so they don't dry out while
you are working on them.
Take 1 sheet at a time and cover the entire sheet in
butter by spreading it with a  pastry brush. Add another
sheet on top, and spread it with butter also. Continue to 
add a sheet on top of the last one, and spread each 
sheet with butter until the stack of sheets are done.
The apples should be done by now. 
Take them out and let them sit while you wrap the Brie.
Place the brie in the middle of the sheets of fillo.
Top the brie with a couple slices of apple.
Wrap the brie by folding in the sides and then folding
in  the top and bottom, rather like the way you wrap
an egg roll.
Place the brie in the oven at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
Remove the brie from the oven. Take a toothpick and 
stick it through the pastry and down through brie to
check to make sure the cheese is soft.  Serve the brie 
with the french bread pieces and the apple slices.
Oh, so good!
