Autumnal feeling

With 26 to 30 degrees, wearing sandals and white trousers
it’s a little bit difficult to think about candles and carpets
all over the house , to create an autumnal atmosphere with
the sunlight and the swimmers on the beach!
I think I’m not integrated with the season...
I did it!
Let’s pretend it’s autumn!
Because the calendar says so!
Because on Sunday, the clocks are going back!
Because Christmas is already in the air!
Because it should be so!

I filled the house with everything that reminds me the season,
 quinces, Virginia creeper vines, fresh walnuts...


late champagne grapes,

faded roses, 

Yes, I feel better now!

A big thank you to all my lovely and dear blogfriends who have
 left such kind comments and sweets thoughts on my previous post.
Thank you, I think that whether we are parents or not, 
we must do our best for the new generation because children 
are our HOPE and our FUTURE.
We must make them understand that we are our choices and 
help them believe in their dreams because without them 
life is simple survival.

 This is the apple cake recipe that my good friend Sarah 
from Down by the sea  has asked for. the cake is here 

Αpple cake recipe

250 softened butter
440 white granulated sugar
4 or 5 organic eggs
260 ml liquid (either milk or orange juice or both)
Lemon or orange zest
½ kilo self-raising flour
4 apples peeled, cored and cut into thick wedges.
Sprinkle them with some lemon juice.
                                      Preheat oven to 250 degrees   

Beat the butter and sugar together with a mixer.
Add the eggs, one by one and continue beating.
The mixture must be very smooth.
Add the liquid, a little flour and the zest.
Add all the flour into the mixture until it becomes creamy.
Pour half of the batter into an oiled  baking tin.
(Alternatively, you can use a deep Pyrex baking dish)
Sprinkle the apples over the batter.
Cover with the rest of the mixture 
and bake for 50 to 60 minutes.
When ready, I sprinkle it with Alchermes liqueur which 
gives a red bright color on the surface and a little 
white sugar but you can use your imagination ...

Good luck!
