Tips to Apple Cake Recipe

After watching my mom make the recipe so many times. I memorized all the secrets. If you feel that adding white flour and granulated sugar is what you like than go ahead and use these ingredients. For granulated sugar use 1 cup. The cake will taste sweeter.

  • Cut the apples in chunks. You will see how the apple chunks in the slice made each bite so good.
  • Use whole wheat flour instead of white flour. So much more flavorful than white flour and better for you.
  • She only used brown sugar because the granulated sugar made it more sweet and she liked it better with out the added sugar. I agree with her, I tried both ways and the one without granulated tasted so much lighter and not so sweet.
  • Even though you may not live on a apple farm like I have. The key ingredient to this recipe is fresh apples. If you can buy your apples at a farmers market it would be wonderful. If not the recipe will still taste delicious. I truly believed the fresh apples made the cake even more delicious.
