What a difference one week makes!
This time last week, the temperature outside was 105 degrees and the temperature inside was 100 degrees. Too hot to cook or eat.
Today, it was cloudy and misty and cool. The inside temperature didn't even reach 70. Woo hoo! Perfect weather!
Just the kind of weather for fall desserts.
Like a double apple bundt cake.

This cake was easy to make. I did substitute currants for raisins, and I used some of my homemade apple butter. I was also liberal with the spices, but would be even more liberal the next time. I want to feel a tang.
To finish the cake, I made an orange-flavored glaze, using freshly squeezed orange juice and a few drops of orange oil.
I also let the cake rest overnight to develop the flavors, which truly improve with age. We liked it much better the older it got.
Of course, there is also less of it the older it gets. My guess is, that by the time it is really in top flavor form, it will be gone.
