I just love this recipe so much. For somebody that hates baking, this is a very easy to make cake and it never fails. I’ve made it about a dozen times, and it’s one of my favorite cakes. It’s easy to bake, super moist, semi-chunky and perfect with a cup of coffee.
I found the recipe at one of my favorite food blogs Pinch of Yum. Their recipe includes a frosting that I never bother to make because the cake is so delicious as it is and we usually start devouring it before it even has a chance to cool off. I know, we are monster!
I’m still taking baby steps on the whole blogging thing, and I may suck at blogging as much as I suck at baking. But I’m trying. I love having my recipes documented and trying other bloggers recipes.
So many recipes to create, to try and to share…So little time.
The Deal: This week @Sprouts Gala, Granny Smith or Red Delicious Apples are 98cents lb. I’ve used Granny Smith and Gala apples for this recipe before and they are both great.
- ¾ cup white sugar
- ½ cup olive oil
- 2 large eggs
- ½ cup honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 4 minced apples (I julienne it in the food processor)
- Start by preheating the oven to 325 degrees. Grease a bundt pan or classic 9" tube cake pan. Core the apples and mince or julienne them in a food processor.
- Whisk the sugar and oil together until smooth. Whisk in the eggs, honey, and vanilla.
- In a separate bowl, combine the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Gently stir the dry mixture into the wet mixture until just combined.
- Fold the apples into the batter. Pour into bundt pan (I used a 1Classic 9" tube cake pan.)
- Bake for about 45 minutes, let stand for 10 minutes, and invert onto a plate.
