Offered To Us By Our Gusdi, Brie

This recipe is an heirloom handed down from
Stacie Lawson Clay, Brie’s Mother
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 olive oil or Crisco oil
3 eggs
3 cups flour
1 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. baking soda, 1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup pecans
3 cups fresh apples peeled
1 cup pineapple, fresh or canned drained
1 cup coconut
1 cup golden raisins
Preheat oven to 350, then set on 325.
 Blend all ingredients together and pour into a large bundt cake pan with a layer of waxed paper on the bottom.  (I use the 2 part metal pan with the central removable tube bottom).
Bake 1 hour. It is a moist cake, but assure it has cooked completely by testing with a long toothpick. My Mom always used a washed corn broom twig.
Let cool 1/2 hour.
Optional topping: 3 tablespoons soft butter, 1/3 cup brown sugar, 2 tbsp. light cream, 1/2 cup coconut, 1/4 cup chopped nuts. Heat all together till sugar in dissolved and drizzle over top of cake.
Brie is now known on our thread as one of the Fab Five.  She has two very special stores on Etsy.  In her first store, she sells her wonderful Spirit People….(Editor’s note: please don’t call them dolls.  Brie prefers “people”.)  Not only does she sell her “people” on Etsy, she also sells them through the gift shop at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C.  That is just how special they are!
In her second store, she sells high quality supplies for creating your own treasures.  Here are examples of items from her two locations and the links for locating them.  
Go to www.briesboutique.etsy.com to see more of this collection.
And just in time for our Spring Wasoli Dance event!  Brie gifted the Fab Five with a necklace made from one of these
sweet wasoli that had been given a vinegar bath to create an awesome patina.  You can see these and other items
Enjoy the cake and shopping at either or both of Brie’s locations!
