It was 10 pm last night and I needed to make one more quick bread for a school function this morning. I had made several breads yesterday and realized I was low on flour and sugar. Darn! It was too late to borrow from a neighbor and I really didn’t feel like driving to the store in my pajamas. Or change to regular clothes, for that matter. I looked in my pantry to find that I had a few Betty Crocker cake mixes. I heard Betty calling out my name so I went on the Betty Crocker website to see what I could find.
Well, wouldn’t you know! There was an apple cake recipe that used Betty Crocker spice cake mix and a can of apple pie filling. Both were sitting right on my top shelf. I did a little streamlining from the original recipe and came up with a moist apple loaf cake that only used three ingredients. It took me about four minutes flat to whip the cake together. While Betty was baking, I was watching an old rerun of King and Queens. Could the night get any better? Maybe if she stopped by to wash my mixer and pan. The cake was sweet, moist and flavorful. It received many complements. Next time, I might even add some nuts. Thanks Betty. You saved the day!
