Does anyone own "Baking from the Heart"?

I am looking for a specific recipe in there: it's called Apple Snacking Spice Cake.

Anyone? Anyone?

  1. Here you go:
    1 c. cake flour, 1 c. all-purp. flour, 1 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp ground ginger, 1/8 tsp ground cloves, 6 tbsp unsalted butter - softened, 1 1/2 c. sugar, 2 lg. eggs, 4 c. chopped granny smith apples (3 lg. apples), 1/3 c. raisins, 1 c. chopped pecans

    Oven 350. Spray 9"x 9" cake pan w. non-stick spray. Sift together dry (cake flour through cloves). In electric mixer, cream butter and sugar about 1 min (medium speed), until light and fluffy. Add eggs, beat on high 1 more minute. On low, add flour mixture, beat only until incorporated. By hand, fold in apples, raisins, nuts. Spoon into prepared pan, bake on middle rack 40-45 min, until firm to the touch. Cover with foil after 25 min if browning too fast. Cool. Enjoy!

        yeah, buying the book was my plan B. but i really just wanted that one recipe, and my cookbook collection is already out of control.

        do you like other recipes from that book? is it worth buying?

        thank you so much for the recipe! chowhound saves me once again! i really appreciate it.
