I own a lot of old cookbooks. I love to look at recipes and see how I can lighten them up or recreate them somehow. I found this old recipe for an apple cake. I studied it and came up with my own recipe I am calling Low Fat Apple Fritter Cake. It is really good. I wanted to get a picture of a piece of cake - however, it was gone too fast. I shared some with my friend Kathy and took the rest to bible study. I had many compliments, so I decided to share the recipe with you guys.
Low Fat Apple Fritter Cake
Dry: 2 1/2 C flour
2 t baking powder
2 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
1 1/2 C sugar
Stir together in keep in separate bowl
Wet: 2/3 C applesauce
2/3 C low fat or no fat yogurt
2 t vanilla
Wisk all of this together in a bowl
Set this to the side and work on the apples. We have had an abundant apple year. I used some from our trees, we don't spray our trees, so they aren't the prettiest.
Then cut up the apples. I used this peeler without the slicer to peel them. I then cored them and cut the sections in half.
6 C apple chunks
1 T cinnamon
1/2 C brown sugar
Stir together till apples are coated with spice
Pour 1/2 of batter in a 9 x 13 pan (spray the pan), dump in the apples and pour the other 1/2 over the top. I did sprinkle some brown sugar on the top of the cake before baking. Bake 350 for 55-60 minutes.
I was thinking that you could use this same batter mix with rhubarb, blueberries, cherries, peaches or pears as well. I plan to keep this one as a "go to". I hope you try it out. Enjoy.
