Apple Cake

The great thing about fruit desserts is that I can feel like I am eating something good for me while indulging my sweet tooth! Of course, it still contains sugar and isn't REALLY good for me, but I can pretend!

Apple Cake 

Briefly adapted from Simply in Season

5 cups apples (unpeeled and chopped)
1 cup sugar (you can add more if your apples are very tart)

Combine and let stand while mixing other ingredients.

1/2 cup oil
2 eggs
Combine in a separate bowl.

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Mix in with oil and eggs until barely moistened. Stir in apples. Pour into greased 9x13 pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.

2/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 T flour
While cake bakes, heat to boiling, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.

1/3 cup powdered sugar
Stir in. Drizzle over hot cake.


  1. It does sooth the conscience a bit to eat some fruit with the dessert, doesn't it! ;)

  2. YAY perfect timing, we get our apples in a few weeks! 1700 lbs for pressing, and 800 lbs for canning, between me and my friend and my mom!!!! i can't wait to try this recipe!!!

  3. this reminds me of the rhubarb cake recipe a little! ( must be why it looks so good to me ..... :)

  4. Looks so delicious, Gina! I saw a similar recipe on Bakerella's website earlier this week and am hoping to try one or the other! I got lots of apples from my sister in law and have made some applesauce, but this looks DELICIOUS!

  5. This sounds delicious! I will have to make this too! Thanks for sharing!

  6. This is one of my favorite fall recipe's from Simply in Season. Can't wait to get some apples!
