White Mountain Cake
HOLY COW !!!!! this cake is awesome !!! The key to making it is to "FOLLOW THE STEPS TO A TEE" I used it for a base for a coconut cake i substituted coconut milk for, cows milk and coconut extract for the almond. I also used 3 9" pans for 3 layers instead(It seemed like too much batter for only 2), which ended up a blessing in disguise, i made cocnut frosting and toasted coconut for the 2 layer, and frosted the 3rd seperately with lemon frosting and served it with a scoop of sweetened crushed pineapple !!! 2 cakes for my function out of one recipie !!!

Apple Butter I
Fantastic !! I added 1/2 tsp allspice and substituted 2 cups brown sugar for 2 of the white and at the 6 hour mark I added 1/4 cup of aged balsamic vinegar !!!! then used the stick blender, as suggested in another review. It was easy and fool proof as it was but for that extra "gourmet" feel go with the vinegar !!. Just a side note i served it warm over grilled pork chops, even the kids went nuts over it.
