Recipe

APPLE CAKE:
4 c. chopped apples

2 eggs
2 c sugar
2 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 c. oil

Mix with a spoon (preferrably one that is already bent slightly).
Add apples last.
Pan 9 x 12 - 35 min. or until fork comes out clean.
I baked it at 350 and it seemed to work.


Bonus grandma recipe (to make up for taking so long):

ONION BREAD
1 pkg yeast
1/4 c. warm water
1/2 tsp. sugar & 1/2 tsp. flour
(Mix above and set aside to let yeast do its thing.)

4 c. all-purpose flour
1/4 c. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. of water and milk mixed
1/4 c. butter

Filling:
1/4 c. butter
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 Tbsp Parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp sesame or poppy seeds
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 tsp. paprika

Mix dough. Set aside to rise until double in bulk. Then roll into 3 rectangles approx. 16 inches by 5 inches.

Put filling ingredients in a small pan and cook about 2 min. (add Parmesan cheese very last). While slightly warm, spread on filling to each strip; pinch together sides. Braid the strips carefully and place on large baking sheet.

Cover and let rise a second time until double in size, 45 to 60 min. Bake at 350 for 30 to 35 minutes until golden brown.

You spent 3 months in Athens? Cool. Was it an exchange program?

And as for Athens, it was a study abroad program through the univ. of Minnesota that was built around a minimum of 1 year of the language and a 50+ page independent research topic. There were 4 of us sharing the apartment with topics from Albanian immigration to classical music. It was a fantastic experience.
