Lazy Saturday

Today I had a lazy Saturday. All the chile plants have been taken care of and are happy in the living room. The problem is space. Now the room looks more like a greenhouse than anything else. There are still some plants waiting for us to figure out a better place for them, but they are warm and sheltered from the weather. That's the most important thing right now. Now we only have to look out for bugs and lices, so we don't get a boost of that, like we had another year when we had to take them in early.

After taken care of the chile I took care of some apples from the garden. I made a wonderful apple cake, in american style. It was so easy, I still remember the recipe in my head. There were no spice in it more than cinnamon, so it really doesn't belong here, but... I will make an exception!

Really easy and tasty Apple pie
5 apples cut into really thin slices

1 cup plain flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp vanilla sugar
½ tsp salt
1 egg
100 g melted butter

Put all the apple slices in a pie dish and add some cinnamon. Mix all the dry stuff in a bowl, and then add the melted butter and the egg (beaten). Stir until you have a nice dough. Put the dough over the apples and push it until it covers everything. Then add some cinnamon again.

Bake for 40 minutes in 200 degrees celsius in the lower part of the oven. Serve with vanilla sauce.
