Dutch Apple Cake
Amy @ uTry.it telling me that I'm one of the lucky winner of the Singing Dog products giveaway. I am totally thrilled to receive such good news early on that morning. This is the second time I've won something from a giveaway so far. :o) And finally received the package two weeks later. I was told to keep an eye on it cause some of the packages from Singing Dog Vanilla got rejected by the Malaysian customs department. Not sure why ! Oh yeah, I am super lucky indeed. haha...... I received a bottle of vanilla bean paste and vanilla blackberry sage tea (come with a bag) from Singing Dog Vanilla. I've been eyeing on this vanilla bean paste since a long time ago. OH FINALLY....finally...finally !!! I can't wait to try it out right away. I am definitely looking for something simple & quick to make and have chosen this Dutch Apple Cake.
