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

    What are the nutritional values? Calories, sugar, unsaturated fat and protein? I want to calculate WW points.

    Well, butter my butt and call me Biscuit!
    I happened upon your one bowl lemon brownies video on YouTube.
    Your opening about the good hair day made me think of my mother and
    at the end your caution to only have one… I almost peed my pants!

    It was after sending your link to my sister and finding your site that I realized the reason for my feeling familiar with you. I’m sure I have seen your TV show. I also see some resemblance to Eileen Davidson and Betty Ford.

    Because of her being a well known and loved beautician, Mother used to say when she was taking food for covered dish gatherings, ” Don’t let anyone see me bring this dish in or they may think it will have hair in it”.

    In case you are curious, photos can be seen on my Facebook: Linda Gail Norris King White.

    Nice to meet you here today, Jenny Jones. I hope all your days are good hair days!!!

    What is flour ratio if using only white flour not whole wheat? Any other changes. Looks delish.

    Good easy apple cake. I substituted applesauce for the oil and coconut sugar for the white sugar. The cake is not real sweet which is how I like it and I will make this again.

    Hi Jenny,
    This looks so easy and sounds wonderful.
    I always read your recipes and can’t wait to make them.
    You cook the way I have to eat — very little sugar.

    Am off to the store to buy some apples.
    Do you peel them?
    Thanks for sending these –
    and for your helpful hints & suggestions.

    Where do you live?

    Substitute for Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
    Per 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour substitute 1/2 cup cake flour and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour OR substitute 1 cup whole wheat flour (product will be more dense)

      We’d all love that 💕. But though it would be great for us, unfortunately it wouldn’t be good for Jenny. She left a note on YouTube saying she really wanted to retire and hoped we’d all understand 🙂
