Betsy's Story

This is about as easy as it gets. Few ingredients and little clean-up. Apples are the star in this cake which doubles as dessert (serve warm with ice-cream) or breakfast with coffee since it's not overly sweet. If you peel quickly or ahead of time you could start eating within an hour.


1 3/4 c
sugar - can use white, brown or mixture
2 tsp
cinnamon (or use pumpkin pie spice with nutmeg)
1/2 c
apples (gala works well- med to large)
1 c
raisins (optional)
2 c
all purpose flour
2 tsp
baking soda

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350°.
In a large bowl, mix the eggs, sugar, cinnamon and oil.
Peel and slice the apples and add to mixture in bowl. If you choose the option for raisins, add them now as well. Mix with rubber scraper to coat the fruit.
Mix together the baking soda and flour and add to the ingredients in the bowl. Mix well with the rubber scraper until all of the flour is absorbed into the wet ingredients. Yes, there is enough liquid. Don't worry.
Spread mixture into a greased 9x13 or two 9″ round cake or pie pans. Bake for approximately 45 minutes. If you opt for the two smaller pans, start checking them at 30 mins.
Serve warm with icecream or cold with whipped cream, or sprinkle with powdered sugar.

I made it just the way the recipe reads with the baking soda and it came out great.

I have seen this same recipe on many sites, but some say baking soda, some say baking powder. Before I try this recipe, I would really like to know which is correct as I don't want to waste the ingredients. Thank you so much.

P.S. The only reason I used apple pie filling is because I'm lazy.

I don't have a photo, sorry. It's important for diabetics to cut carbs, that's why I used soy flour. It has far less carbs.

I'm so happy you were able to adjust the recipe. My son's girlfriend and my niece are also diabetic so I might try your version for them. I never would have thought flour was an issue. Would love to see a photo of your efforts.
