No butter, no oil, and quite low in calories, 116 per slice to be exact.
And yet, this is such such a flavorful and moist cake. It’s still dessert. The apple is prominent, as it calls for six! The fruit is cooked just right, not mushy at all, and plays perfectly with the soft crumb of the cake.
It’s not as autumn tasting as most apple cakes because there is only a hint of cinnamon rather than a whole party of warm spices. It’s a subtle welcome into Fall. And after enjoying a slice, you’ll feel neither guilty nor afraid to put on a bathing suit should the summer make a final appearance before Autumn takes over entirely.
