So, I was sitting in my bed, surfing the web (as I tend to find myself doing, especially when I am confined to it:) and had this urge for something sweet. I happened to stumble upon a post on Simple Organized Living that happened to have a Best Apple Cake recipe. The picture of the cake looked so delicious, that I was prompted to go the the kitchen and carefully manage to put together the ingredients of the recipe while sitting down. It wasn’t easy, but the end result was totally worth it. There was only one problem, I didn’t have all of the exact ingredients and therefore had to do what I usually do when I run into this kind of situation…I make substitutions!

Therefore here is my tweaked (and lower fat) version of the recipe (I actually made quite a few changes):

2 c. unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 t.  sea salt
1 T. organic ground cinnamon
1 T. baking powder
4  organic/cage-free eggs
1.5 c. organic cane  sugar
1/4 c. canola oil
1/3 c. unsweetened pumpkin butter
2 t. organic vanilla extract

1/3 c. water
3  organic Gala apples — peeled, cored and diced
cinnamon and sugar to sprinkle over the top


Preheat oven to 400* F .
In a medium bowl, mix all ingredients except apples and the extra cinnamon and sugar.
Pour batter into a greased bundt ban.

Sprinkle the apples, cinnamon, and sugar over the top of the batter.
Bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until a toothpick/butter knife inserted into center of cake comes out clean.

My husband and my son tried it with some whipped cream and went back for seconds! I also enjoyed a large slice or two. Thanks Andrea!
