This is a recipe of my own creation. My intern is celebrating her birthday tomorrow, so I wanted to cook for her. All of the interns where I work are full-time interns who make (significantly) less than minimum wage. She always talks about how much she likes my chili, so I’m making her some of that, some bread (focaccia? french? I’m not sure yet), and a cake.
Originally I was going to make the Apple Cake a few pages down, but I was short some of the ingredients (butter, orange juice), so I decided to take a yellow cake mix (I used Pillsbury) and doctor it up some, then layer it with apples.
AND to make it even better, I decided to try to add a graham cracker crust. Since the mix was the beginning of the recipe, it was an easy cake to make. The hardest part was peeling and coreing the apples.
I’m calling this a “Break of Dawn” cake for two reasons: it’d be good for breakfast (apples are fruit after all) and my intern’s name is Dawn.
I’ll let you all know how it turns out tomorrow after we eat it. All of the measurments are approximate, but I think I have a good idea of what they are.
