Guilt Free Apple Cake

This is a delicious and moreish apple cake, perfect with a cup of tea - and what's more it's low in calories compared to most cakes as there's no oil or butter required and yet the cake remains moist and tasty thanks to the liquid from the apples. 

Guilt Free Apple Cake

Here's how:

  • 500g apples (I use Granny Smiths but most would work here)
  • 110g plain flour
  • 2 eggs
  • Zest of a lemon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 100g light brown sugar
  • 75ml full fat milk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon 
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg

Firstly pop your oven on at around 180 degrees and grease and line a 20cm round tin and set aside.

Peel and core the apples and thinly slice and then squeeze over a drop of lemon juice to prevent them browning.

Combine the eggs, sugar, lemon zest, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and mix well. Add half of the apples to the mix and mix then pour into the tin.

Now neatly arrange the rest of the apple into a nice pattern on top. Sprinkle with a teaspoon more of brown sugar and pop into the oven for 30 minutes or until golden brown and a skewer comes out dry. 

Enjoy alone or with a little creme fraiche for a treat. Enjoy!
