Easy apple cake recipe with only 4 ingredients!

This is possibly the easiest apple cake you could ever make. I found the recipe on Laylita's Recipes and I just had to try it. Not only is it yummy, it is also very very low in fat. It works out at 15gr fat for the whole cake. So if you cut it into 8 slices it works out at less than 2gr fat per slice. Win!


Ingredients
  • 3 apples - I used fuji apples but you can use granny smith if you prefer a tart flavour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 cup sugar - I used brown sugar but you can use white if you prefer


Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 200C (400F) 
  2. Peel and roughly chop the apples
  3. Mix the eggs, flour and sugar in a bowl using an electric mixer until the batter is smooth
  4. Fold the chopped apples into the batter
  5. Pour into a small cake tin - mine's a 20cm round tin
  6. Bake in oven for 20mins at 200C, then lower temperature to 160C and bake for another 20mins until golden.
Note: This is a very moist cake and you might need to adjust the temperature/time to suit your oven to make sure it's thoroughly baked. To test if it's done insert a toothpick in the middle, if it comes out clean it's done. I had to bake mine longer than was recommended in the original recipe as otherwise the middle was still not baked thoroughly.


Serve with a side of vanilla ice cream for a decadent dessert, or have it as is with a cup of nice tea.



Enjoy!
