Fried Cinnamon Apple Rings

NOTICE:  I am in the process of moving to a new house (finally one of my own!!) with an awesome kitchen!!(I can't wait to share it with you!)  So right now my cooking time is minimal therefore, I am so thankful that my cousin (an AMAZING cook) did this post and shared this incredible recipe with me!! 
What better way to celebrate Flag Day than with Delicious Fried Apple Rings~!
~Flag Day is also her birthday...HAPPY BIRTHDAY RHONDA!!
Fried Apple Rings
from Rhonda Shuck
3 large apples (any kind)
2 cups pancake mix
2 Tablespoons of Cinnamon and sugar mixed together

First we take the apples an peel and slice them. I use my handy dandy apple peeler slicer and it worked great.
This of course could be done by hand also.

Take  pancake mix and and 2 tablespoons of cinnamon & sugar mix and stir in. (the cinnamon and sugar mix is the one I use for sprinkling cinnamon toast)
Mix with enough water to make a thicker pancake batter.
Dip you apple rings in your batter, making sure all edges are covered.
Fry them until golden brown; turning once.
Enjoy plain or sprinkle with powdered sugar or make a light glaze with brown sugar and powered sugar.  
Brown Sugar glaze is powered sugar and brown sugar mixed together with a little water.
(This is Rhonda's favorite!)
Thank you Rhonda!!
and I'm off for a day of painting...

Almond Joy Chocolate Bundt Cake

I was looking for something a little different to take to a monthly work pot luck lunch.  I had found a box of Almond Joy flavored pudding at the grocery store and it inspired this recipe.  It turned out delicious and the mix in added a nice change from normal cake.
Almond Joy Chocolate Bundt Cake
1 box German Chocolate cake mix
Mix according to package directions.
Stir in:
1 cup sour cream
1 (3.5 oz) box pudding mix (I used Almond Joy flavored, coconut cream or chocolate will work too.) Add the dry mix to the batter.
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup coconut
1/2 cup almonds

Pour into a greased bundt pan and bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until the cake bounces back when touched in the center.  I allow mine to cool in the pan just a few minutes before taking it out of the pan.
Now it is up to you..
You can add a little chocolate glaze to the top, sprinkle with some powdered sugar or do both.
You could even serve with vanilla ice cream!!
