Apple, hazelnut and raisin cake recipe

I have to admit that one of the things I love doing most in winter time is baking. Everything. From pizza to pies…I love to spend time in the kitchen, mixing ingredients…I think this is so relaxing…and when the cake is in the oven, I usually wait sitting in the kitchen, sipping hot tea and crocheting. Yesterday I baked this yummy apple pie with hazlenuts and raisin. Apple pie, apple CAKE to be precise, is my favourite cake. Ever. I never get tired of it. I also love NY cheesecake, but no more than a piece (ok…a large piece!) I was going to have dinner at my mom’s and I was sure they would have appreciate it. The recipe is really simple and fast. Believe me…you’ll win the day!...more
