Fall Apple Cake

Apple Season.

dun dun dun …


If you buy way too many apples and eat way too many apples. Well, now it is time to bake with apples. 

This is a recipe for apple cake. 

It is kind of like a bread… but with apples.


Just whip it up in a bowl, pour in a pan, and bake.  Once it is cooled, you cut it into squares.  

And it makes your kitchen smell like fall. 



Low-Fat Apple Cake

(This recipe is adapted from the Realistic Nutritionist)

For the cake:

  • 1 ¼ cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 ½ teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 medium apples, finely chopped and seeded
  • 1 large organic egg
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup chopped almonds or walnuts (or both)
  • ¼ cup organic applesauce

For the topping:

  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup oats (optional)


- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and coat your baking pan with cooking spray.

- In a small mixing bowl, mix flour, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice and salt with a whisk. Set aside.

- In a larger bowl, mix white sugar, apples, chopped nuts, egg and applesauce. Stir together with the flour mixture and pour into a square baking pan, or whatever pan you have.

- In a seperate skall bowl, mix brown sugar and white confectionars sugar together with a fork. I like adding oats to it.  

- Sprinkle mixture over the apple cake and bake for 32-35 minutes or until cake is browned.
