Classic Apple Cake

Classic Apple Cake

It’s fall season! Which means plenty of apples and other delicious food. Since we have three apple trees, and most of the apples were ripe and had a very strong aroma, I decided to make apple cake. The recipe is a very worn recipe, torn from a magazine, and has been used multiple times. (there are a dozen of pen marks on it because I love tweaking amounts, baking time…)

Now when I compare the original recipe to my tweaked one, I pretty much doubled the recipe, reduced the amount of butter and sugar, and a few other things. And this recipe is ridiculously simple to make!

This is the “healthy version” of the cake, which I think tastes even better is more moist than the original cake. I tried to replace the butter with applesauce and coconut oil, but there was a huge difference in taste. So do not substitute or omit the butter!

In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.

Mix the applesauce and eggs in a large bowl. Then add in the raw cane sugar, rum and vanilla.

Mix in half of the flour mixture, and half of the melted butter. Repeat with the remaining flour mixture and butter.

Fold in the chopped apples and pour the batter into a greased, parchment-lined 9-inch springform pan. Bake for 45-50 minutes in a preheated 180 °C (356 °F) oven. It should be ready when the top is a nice brown color and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Let it cool in the pan for 15 minutes before releasing the sides and taking the parchment paper off the bottom. Serve warm or at room temperature.
