apple cake & a playschool birthday celebration!

last week we had our second birthday celebration at playschool. i finally made the apple cake i came to know and love when i was an assistant for sarah baldwin of (bella luna toys fame) at the ashwood waldorf school. I think the origianl recipe comes from the Three Rivers Waldorf School.
it's a wonderful recipe and easy enough that even the young children can do all the mixing themselves. although i handled the 1 CUP of pure maple syrup...you heard that right...ONE CUP...can you see how good this recipe is already!
you can bake in just about any size or shape of pan, although i prefer the bundt version...there is something a bit more festive about it's sweet shape to me.
the recipe is as follows (and it's eggless to for those with allergies)

{apple birthday cake ring}1 cup oil
1 cup maple syrup
1 2/3 cups apple sauce
4 tsp cinnamon

Mix above ingredients together

3 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon

mix above ingredients well and add to first mixture
bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 50 minutes in a circle pan. we love to serve our birthday cake with homemade whipped cream and fruit...this time we had blueberries the family had picked in the summer and frozen for an year round treat...yum!
