It's March 7th and it snowed again last night. I woke up this morning and noticed a dusting of snow atop of the grass and parked cars. The dusting of snow reminded me of the elegance of dusted powder sugar on top of delicious baked goods.
This apple bundt cake is a cross between a bread and cake. If you've followed any of other recipes, followers know I do not make things as sweet as other bloggers. I believe in natural sweetness, or at least hints of sweetness. Our country and culture has massive sugar addiction and emotional eating issues. If you want this more of a cake texture, you'll need to add more sugar.
Something similar like this bread/cake can be transformed into something elegant, while "dressed up" with some powder sugar and flowers.
Elegance is something that has been on my mind a lot lately...
"The woman who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The woman who walks alone is likely to find herself in places no one has ever been before." -Albert Einstein
Elegance is something missing in today's society of vulgarity. Today, everything is taken as a joke and nothing is taken seriously. Comic relief has replaced class. It's not that we should lose our sense of humor, that is very important. But, we've lost the lady and gentleman culture. This doesn't mean top hats and 1950's dresses, this is about our attitude and the way we treat each other.
We need a resurrection of that, which is lost in a world of confusion.
"The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows and the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years."
