This is a cake that I’ve made a bunch of times. It’s super easy and doesn’t require a bunch of clean up :)! I whipped it up the other night when we had an unplanned dinner with our friends from “Zero to Cruising.” Rebecca doesn’t really like things too sweet and this turned out to be a great dessert for her!
Another cruiser brought a version of this to a potluck and asked her for the recipe so I could vegan-ize it and give it a touch of island!
What you’ll need:
-2 cups flour
-3 smallish/medium apples
-1 cup canola oil
-3/4 cup sugar (I use the natural cane kind)
-1 cup natural un-sweetened applesauce
-6 tbls. Water
-3 tsp. baking powder
-1 tsp. vanilla
-1/2 tsp. cinnamon
-1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
-Preheat oven to 350 degrees
-Chop apples, either with or without peels- as you wish! Set aside
-Toss all the ingredients (except apples) into the same bowl and blend (really, no drama here)
-Lightly flour a baking pan- I use an 8x8 but you can use up to a 9x11.
-Place half the batter in the pan and spread around to evenly distribute
-Place half the cut up apples on top the batter
-Pour the other half of the batter on top and lightly shake or spread to distribute evenly
-Place the rest of the apples on top
-Bake for about 30 minutes or until slightly golden brown and toothpick comes clean from center.
-Serve hot or cooled, it’s great both ways.
That’s all! Enjoy!
