Apples Apples Apples - An apple a day keeps the doctor away

Who said eating a cake is fattening. This is a healthy way to eat an apple cake and enjoy the full flavour without feeling guilty:

Ingredients:

1 cup homemade apple butter or good quality jar (I use my own)

1 cup of sugar

1/4 cup of butter

3 eggs

3 cups cake flour or all purpose

1 cup raisin

1 cup chopped nuts

2 tsp baking soda

Dash of salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp spice mix: nutmeg, cloves, cardamom (or use one kind you like)

2 apples chopped

Streusel topping (optional)





Perfect in a lunch box
Square cake pieces

Mini cake loaves

Baked in ramekins

In a silicon cake pan
