Realistic Cooking Ideas

for Busy People! And sharing our life adventures along the way!

Do you have a lot of apples this fall season? Are you looking for a recipe that uses apples and wonderful spices to bring out the flavors? This is a delicious recipe that is great for the holidays with the apples and spices! A perfect fall dessert! I adapted this recipe from Diabetic Living. It makes a small 8x8x2-inch pan, which is perfect for when you want to make a quick dessert that does not take much time. Plus a small pan helps with calorie control! The topping is a simple whipped cream with perhaps a sprinkle of cinnamon or other fun topping. It travels nicely since you can bring along some whip cream or other topping.

Apple Spice Cake served

I think it looks yummy right in the pan! You can dice or slice your apples as you like them. I cut mine in chunks and they are tender with a bit of a snap.Β Apple Spice Cake

I like to top the whipped cream with some pretty toppings to add some color! It also looks nice on the plate. You can take a simple dessert and make it look gourmet with your toppings and plating.Β Apple Spice Cake View from top
Dry Ingredients:
3/4-cup flour
1/2-cup white whole-wheat flour
1/4-cup flaxseed meal
1 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground cloves

Wet Ingredients:
1 egg
6 – ounce carton plain low-fat Greek yogurt
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce + 3 tbsp.
1 1/2 tbsp. molasses
1 large baking apple, sliced or diced

Topping Ingredients:
Light whipped dessert topping
Cinnamon or other topping to shake over the dessert

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat an 8x8x2-inch baking pan with cooking spray; set aside.

Combine the dry and wet ingredients in separate bowls. Mix in the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and then fold in the apple slices/chunks. Spread batter evenly in the prepared baking pan.

Bake about 20 – 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. This dessert is excellent served warm. Top each serving with whipped topping and consider adding more cinnamon or other toppings.
