Low Fat Apple Fritter Cake

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
           3 eggs
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.
