Sweet Potato Queens

Two recipes to share today, one was given to me by a friend of a friend turned friend, Kitty. This is the most wonderful Margarita on the rocks that I've ever had. When made frozen, this margarita takes on a frothy consistency which makes it all too easy too drink. Kitty is a fantastically fun person which is fitting for this drink. Enjoy...

Sweet Potato Queens Knock You Naked Margarita

12 oz. frozen limeade
12 oz. tequila
12 oz. 7-Up
1 Corona

Mix all ingredients in a pitcher along with orange, lime and lemon slices. Let sit at least 20 minutes in fridge before serving over rocks or blending with ice. (If serving frozen, remove fruit slices prior to blending).

The other recipe is one that my daughter Emma June and I discovered in one of our library books from our weekly trip. The book was called Apple Farmer Annie and the recipe is Applesauce Cake. It turned out perfectly moist with just the right amount of sweet and spice or as Emma June says, "sweet and tasty".

Applesauce Cake

1/2 c. butter, softened
1 c. sugar
2 eggs, large
1 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. allspice
1 c. applesauce
1/2 c. raisins (optional)

Cream together butter and sugar in large mixing bowl. Add eggs and beat well. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, salt and spices. Add to creamed mixture alternating with applesauce, beating after each addition and blending well. Stir in raisins. Pour batter into 9-inch greased tube pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes or until top is browned and toothpick comes out clean when inserted. After cooling for ten minutes poke holes all over cake with toothpick or fork and pour icing over.

Butter Icing

2 tbs. butter, softened
2 c. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3 tsb. milk

Cream together butter, sugar, and vanilla. Add milk and stir well. The frosting should be smooth and easy to pour.

  2. I've had the pleasure of enjoying the above margaritas (made by the blogger herself) and they are quite tasty indeed. Even better? Super easy!
