Family members brought in a batch of Banana Bread, one bite and I could tell they hadn't sifted the baking powder. There were little balls of baking powder throughout the rather short pieces. The bread was gone in the matter of seconds anyway.

My mom taught me to sift, she could always tell when someone just tossed baking powder or soda in a recipe.

I just use a whisk and combine the leavening with the flour, as long as the leavening is dry and clump free it isn't usually a problem. I do use a sifter if there are lots of spices that I want to distribute evenly, or if I suspect clumps.

I almost never bake. A tourtiere at the holidays is about it. But a friend mentioned she has way too many apples, and I remembered an apple spice cake from my youth. Haven't made it in years, but my elderly friend's recipe is long-lost. But Joy of Cooking has one that is similar and I've used it before with success.

So, on Monday I have a get together with friends and will bring one cake, and another friend's 81st birthday, and I'll do one for her. There will be leftover apples, and apple sauce is so easy to make, so I'll do that with the rest and bring it up to my favorite gals.

Enough for me with baking until tourtiere time.

That sounds really good! When I make it, I have to make extra "crisp" to go on top, per my partner's request. He hated everything apple until I started baking for him.

I make extra "crisp"also

In the late fall this is a once a week Sunday dinner treat. I make up the topping and keep it in a ziplock bag in the freezer. When I want to make a small crisp for one I peel an apple or two and put a scoop of the frozen crumbles on top and bake as usual.

I was glad I only decided to make two cakes, because the apples were in rotten shape (yes, friend had warned me). But I managed to eke out two apple spice cakes (Joy of Cooking recipe, more or less), apple heavy. I don't bake enough to keep vanilla extract on hand, but use rum (I think spiced rum would have been better, but make do). It was a hit at the Labor Day party, and the other cake will go to an elderly shut-in friend tomorrow. For someone who rarely bakes, whose husband doesn't eat sweets (it really isn't very sweet), I think I did OK.
