School started on Tuesday and so did the rain. It just stopped a few hours ago, so the last few days I've been holed up inside my house cleaning, knitting, cooking, baking. Doing all those things I really didn't do much of in the summer weather. Anyway, I was glad for the rain as my plants needed it so badly! And as I really needed some quiet time, the rain gave me an excuse to stay inside and be domestic.
So, the cake pictured above is apple and raisin, and a really nice one to bake in the fall. You can find the recipe here. It's the kind of cake that makes your whole house smell delicious for at least a few hours after baking it. And it tastes even better the next day.
