Yule - Simple recipes

Okay, everyone as promised:

My yule cake:

(You can also add come fruits or nuts, if you like it.)
1 Cup of honey
1 Cup of butter
1 Cup of sugar
5 eggs
2 Cups of your favorite flour
3 table spoons of iogurt
1 pintch of Basil
1 tea spoon of baking powder
2 shoped (horizontaly) apples

Preheat oven to 350 deg, before stating the cake, because that will only take a few minutes. You'll need two bowls for this.

In one of the bowls, mix the dry ingredients (flour, the baking powder, the basil and the sugar). The wet ingridients (honey, butter, iogurt and eggs) are to be beaten' up really smooth before adding to the dry ingridients bowl.
Mix them until the mixture start to form some bubbles (that means you'll goin' to have a pretty fluffly cake).

Grease the cake pan, you'll be working with, with butter, sprinkling it with sugar and some cinnamon powder, after that cover the botton of the pan with the shoped apples. Pour the cake mixture on top of the apples and let it cook for about 20-30minutes, if possible, check the cake every 10min, using a tooth pick (once it goes out clean, your cake is done!)

Yule cheap and yummy oil:
5 Table spoons of sweet almond oil
3 Anisse stars
5 Cloves
1 Cinnamon stick
1 sunstone (optional)

Personally, I like to add some Pepper, because it always makes me feel energetic like the sun.

Warm the oil in a pan but not to much, you don't wan't it to boil or burn, adding the Anisse stars, Cloves and Cinnamon Stick. Once the ingridients are all infused, set it aside and let it cool.

I like to add the Sunstone, you can add any stone you want, at this point and let it infuse the oil. I tend to keep this in a jar and let it be outside during the yule's day mourning and use it during the ritual at night.
