Apple Cake

Submitted by: NIGHTFALL

Introduction

Surprisingly moist and delicious use of that bag of apples you have laying around every Fall! I haven't tried using all applesauce instead of the oil, but that could work though bake time/temp may need adjusting.

This cake begs to have fat free caramel drizzled over top, or whipped cream, or anything really. The original recipes calls for a cooked butter/sugar/cream mixtured spooned over top, but it's frighteningly calorie-laden.

Ingredients

    4 c peeled, cored chopped apples (about 8 medium apples)
    2 c white sugar
    2 c flour
    1 1/2 tsp baking soda
    2 tsp cinnamon
    1 tsp salt
    2 eggs
    1/2 c applesauce, unsweetened
    1/4 c oil
    2 tsp vanilla
    (1 c nuts - pecans, walnuts - optional, not in calorie count)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 F
Core, peel, and chop the apples into a large bowl with the sugar and mix with a spoon (mixer will mash up apples). Add all remaining dry ingredients and stir well.
In a separate bowl beats eggs, applesauce, oil, and vanilla.
Stir egg mixture into apple mixture (then add nuts if using). Dough will look runny, like pancake batter.
Bake in 9 x 13 pan for 50 minutes. Top will be brown and moist. Serve warm (with sauce if you have it!)
