Fulfilling a Promise to a Friend

Last Update: February 23, 2016

Awhile back, a good friend of mine here at WA had a Birthday, and had written a Blog about it, and mentioned an Apple Oatmeal Pie with a recipe she was going to treat herself to.

I responded with a hearty Birthday Wish, and that I would enjoy making this delicious Pie, and send her one of my favorite recipes from Mom's, Mom's Mom. I'm sure there are enough of you who know what I am talking about.

Now since this appears to have nothing to do with building a business here, let me connect some of the dots of similarity so that it will apply. Like a Recipe, with the right ingredients added at the right times, and the proper methods followed, the finished product can be enjoyed.

Clicking the "Get Started Here" tab, and then beginning the Entrepreneur Certification Course or Bootcamp depending on your pursuit. Following the classes lesson by lesson & completing each task produces the ability to know how to build a business online the right way, and on to success.

Key Ingredients:

  • Niche
  • Website
  • Content
  • Keywords
  • Heart for your Audience
  • Posts
  • Blogs
  • Pay-it-Forward Mindset

Now we'll get to my Recipe:

Old Fashioned Coffee Cake

Preheat oven to 350 F or 180 Celsius.

1/2 cup Butter (Cream the Butter & Sugar together, then add the

1 cup Sugar 2 Eggs & Almond Flavoring mixing well)

2 Eggs

1 tsp Almond Flavoring

In a seperate bowl add the dry ingredients:

2 Cups Flour

3 tsp Baking Powder

1 tsp Salt

Add these dry ingredients alternately with 1 1/2 cups milk to the sugar mixture. Pour into a greased & floured 9" X 9" Baking pan


Melt 1/4 cup butter and pour unevenly over top of Batter in pan.

Mix 1 cup of Sugar with 1 1/2 Tbsp Cinnamon. Sprinkle on top of Cake evenly.

Next, take a butter knife, and draw the knife across the pan back and forth from side to side in both directions.

Place in oven at 350 F or 180 Degrees Celsius. Bake for 30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

You will most definitely make this more than once. Why??? Because everyone's favorite piece will be the middle. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm


Now go bake your success here at WA, and be sure and share!!!

Don't stand between your kids & the middle piece. Lol Thankyou Michelle. Gotta keep this principle in check now when I get discouraged or overwhelmed. Follow the recipe.

Looks delicious. A good analogy to building a business.

Thankyou, had to at least make it connect with WA, and when I thought of "recipe" "ingredients" it came to me. Building a Business follows a recipe as well, and if you use wrong ingredients you come out with wrong results. :-)

Loes was outstanding too. Never made a pie with grated Apples, and found that Apple Cake is a favorite in Holland. Enjoy
