Today I'm going to share with you a recipe from my childhood best friend's mom. Her name was Lorrie and she is also the aunt of my sister-in-law, Jill. She was an amazing cook and ran a catering company for years. Jill makes another of her famous dishes, creamed carrots with cheese, every time we have a family dinner and they're so delicious.
This cake has a special place in my heart. It was one of my favourite things she ever made, I always hoped she would have it when I was at Leanne's for a sleepover just so I could have a slice. My mom got the recipe from her when we were kids and it was one of the first recipes I asked her for when I moved out.
Sadly, Lorrie passed away after battling with breast cancer for years and these recipes mean even more to us all now than ever. I'm grateful to have known her and am honoured to be able to share this with all of you.
Lorrie's Apple Bundt CakeYield: 1 cake Prep: 30 min Cook: 55-60 minutes Temp: 350F
1/2 cup vegetable oil2 cups white sugar1/4 cup orange juice1/2 cup applesauce2 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract3 eggs3 cups all purpose flour3 tsp baking powder1/2 tsp salt1 cup chopped walnuts2 cups applesauce for fillingpowdered sugar for topping
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease and flour a bundt pan. With an electric mixer beat together the vegetable oil, sugar, orange juice, 1/2 cup applesauce, vanilla and eggs. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt and slowly add to the wet ingredients; mix until combined. Stir in walnuts. In the bundt pan, layer half the batter, then the 2 cups of applesauce and finish with the rest of the batter. Bake 350F for 55-60 minutes. Remove from the oven, cool and sprinkle with icing sugar. I top mine with candied walnuts as well.
Thanks for this recipe Lorrie, it's never as good as you made it but it's the memories it brings that mean the most to me.

GRANDPA ART'S BORSCHT
Borscht can be made in so many different ways, there seems to be variations for all different cultures but it's a very basic soup that is so hearty and delicious. This recipe comes from my father-in-law and he always makes it in the late summer and early fall with fresh veggies from his garden.
