Easy One Bowl Apple Cake

Easy One Bowl Apple CakeEverybody stay calm! 🙂 There is no cinnamon in my crispy top apple cake. You can add some if you like but I tried using cinnamon and I prefer it with just a little vanilla. This way the apples are the star. This is another easy one-bowl recipe for a healthy dessert that I absolutely love. Here’s why:

~ No mixer
~ No butter
~ Uses less sugar
~ Has whole grains and fruit
~ Minimal cleanup

This fresh apple cake is healthy enough to include with breakfast. (notice I said “with” and not “for!”) 😋 Be sure to keep the apple pieces small, no bigger than 1/2-inch so they cook through. I use Granny Smith apples 🍏. I have made this cake using 100% whole wheat pastry flour and it turned out well but using half all purpose and half whole wheat pastry flour makes it much lighter, so that’s the one I prefer.

I’m loving my one-bowl recipes and am always looking for an easier way to make my favorite foods. And it doesn’t get much easier than this. With or without cinnamon, this is still the easiest apple cake you will ever make. Click here for the recipe. – Jenny Jones

Kman MADE MY NO KNEAD BREAD

“I have been “baking” in a bread machine for over 10 years but was always nervous about no-knead bread. Mine came out just fine (even though I left it on the counter for 17 hours instead of 12). Next step, with olives and a little whole wheat flour!”

~ It looks perfectly delicious to me. Thanks for your photo. ~ jenny

MARIE (from Chicago) MADE MY FALL OFF THE BONE RIBS

“Hi Jenny, I brought 9 lbs. of ribs made using your recipes for  rib rub,  homemade barbeque sauce and Fall Off the Bone Ribs to a party.  People were ‘oohing’ and ‘aahing’ even before tasting them.  They tasted as good as they looked.   Leftovers tasted great the next day, also.  Thanks for sharing these recipes and making me look like a real pro! Kind regards from Chicago, IL, Marie Nixon.”

DONNA (from Indianapolis) MADE MY SIMPLE WHOLE WHEAT BREAD

Deliciousness! I made my first loaf of whole wheat bread last night.  It was tough to wait the 10 minutes to slice! I’m telling everyone to check out your website. Everything is easy peasy!!! – Donna Skinner Indianapolis, hometown Toronto.”

MARILYN (from Florida) MADE MY CINNAMON RAISIN BREAD

“Beautiful and tasty bread.  Thanks for sharing your recipe.  It was a hit with my husband who is not a fan of sweet baked goods.  I really enjoy watching your videos especially because you have helped me learn the technique of properly braiding bread.  I have finally perfected this process and am confident of my future success in creating various braided breads. – Marilyn  Russell “Lapetitchef,” Apopka, FL.

~ It turned out beautifully! Thank you for sharing your photo. ~ jenny

ERIK (from the Netherlands) MADE MY SIMPLE WHOLE WHEAT BREAD

Hi Jenny, I baked your wheat bread. I guess my pan is slightly larger than yours. The egg was cold and the milk not quit as hot as it should have been. It took an hour and a half to reach an inch over the edge. But after 30 mins on 190centigrade, I think it’s not too bad for a first attempt. Greetings from the Netherlands, Dronten City. – Erik Groothuis

~ The Netherlands! Woo Hoo! This “first attempt” looks perfect to me. Thank you for your fantastic photo. ~ jenny

RUBEN (from Puerto Rico) MADE MY NO KNEAD BREAD

Hi Jenny! I want to thank you for your easy bread recipe. It came out perfect as described in your video. Can I add dry herbs like oregano and rosemary? If so when should I add them? Tks again! ~ Ruben from Isabela, Puerto Rico.”

~ Thank you for the great photo and you can add herbs at the beginning of the mixture. ~ jenny

One Pan Greek Lemon Chicken & Potatoes

One Pan Greek Lemon Chicken & PotatoesI’m so excited to share this easy one-pan meal. It’s Mediterranean eating at its best… healthy, low fat, and full of flavor. The whole thing is ready in an hour so there’s plenty of time to steam some broccoli or make a salad.

When using lemon, it’s best to use a non-reactive pan like Pyrex. I found a 13 by 9 pan at the grocery store for 12.49. The marinade is really simple, using one large lemon but you can use more lemon if you like. Here’s how it looks before cooking:

Greek Lemon Chicken Recipe

I try to submerge as many potatoes into the liquid as possible so they absorb lots of lemon/garlic flavor. About 10 minutes before it’s done, I turn over the potatoes and chicken. Here is it after cooking:

One Pan Greek Lemon Chicken & PotatoesMost of the liquid will cook off and I use whatever juices are left, including the onions, to pour over the chicken for serving. I slice the chicken so the juices go inside all the slices. I love this easy recipe. They say the healthiest diet in the world is the Mediterranean diet and this is it!
