Butterscotch Apple Cake

This might be my first time using butterscotch chips. Usually I find them too sweet, but they work really well with the apple cake underneath. Found the recipe from Sugar Plum's blog.

I didn't have a 13x9" pan, so as expected, I had to bake it longer for the center to cook through. So if you have it available, use the appropriate size baking dish!

Fiore oils

Got back from Maine yesterday. There was a little store off the main square in Bar Harbor called Fiore that offered olive oil and balsamic vinegar tastings. I passed on the vinegar, but the oils were pretty tasty. I made the mistake of trying their special Butternut Squash seed oil first, which blew away anything after it. It smells and tastes like a cross between pumpkin seeds and peanuts. Their flavored olive oils like blood orange and meyer lemon were a little too strong for my taste. Hoping to try the Roasted French Walnut oil which I just spotted on their site.
