Friday Food Fun

I found this recipe in the September issue of Woman's Day....and I plan on picking up the ingredients to make it this weekend!!  
Have any of you switched from "white flower" products to "whole-grain"?  We have....and I'll have to say, that I really like the pasta much has a better taste and texture!!

Anyway....if any of you try this, let me know!!!

Whole-Grain Apple Cake 

1 box (20.5 oz) whole-grain apple-cinnamon muffin mix
2 large eggs
3 medium Granny Smith, or Gala apples, peeled, cored and cut in 1/4-inch thick slices

Heat oven to 375.  Coat a 9-inch spring form pan with nonstick cooking spray.  Prepare muffin mix as on the package directions, using 2 eggs, 1/2 cup water and 1/4 cup oil. Gently stir in 1 sliced apple with the provided apple-cinnamon pouch.  Spread into pan.

Arrange the remaining apple slices in circles on top.  Sprinkle with 3 Tablespoon of sugar, then the granola topping on top.

Bake for 55 minutes, or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.

If you want.....sprinkle 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, or pecans, on the top along with the granola.

Serves 12.

Happy Friday, Everybody!!!
