Stacie's Norwegian Apple Cake

Aimee requested this recipe.

I healthied it up:

Stacie's Norwegian Apple Cake

3/4 cup sugar ( use a good raw sugar)
1/2 cup all purpose flour (I use Whole Wheat Pastry Flour. If you do this add a bit more flour)
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 md. tart apple, peeled and chopped or you can use a cup of canned peaches

In a mixer combine first six ingredients. Add apple or peaches. Pour into a 9-inch pie plate or an 8x8 greased pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar if desired. Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes or until knife comes out clean. Makes 8 servings.

I double this for my family and it's just perfect! They kids raved about it and it makes a good breakfast when you use the Whole Wheat.

I'll try to post that almond cake recipe you were wanting, soon. This one sounds great, too. I'm printing it out now. Do you think I could use sucanat and would turn out OK?

You could use honey, You could try it with sucanat. Maybe add a bit more for a sweeter taste?

I'm puzzled that this recipe calls for more sugar than flour. Is it written correctly? I almost always use sucanat when not using honey. And I don't have to use more because it is sweeter, so I use less. In fact, when I use honey I 'half' it.

Stacie, A Firefighter's Wife said...

It is written correctly. It's a sweet eggy cake. It's delicious! If I was using honey I would cut it down too, but I find sucanat doesn't taste as sweet, especially when I make cinnamon rolls. I always have to add more. I guess everyone's taste buds are different.

I missed you, too, Catherine!
