Whole Wheat Apple Cake

As far as healthy cakes go, this is our current favorite. Compared to my grandmother's oh-so-delicious chocolate pound cake with buttercream frosting, this is practically a diet food. And while the chocolate pound cake edges apple cake out in decadence, the apple cake is pretty yummy and there's not nearly the guilt involved in the eating. :-)

Whole Wheat Apple Cake

2 eggs
1 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 2/3 cups honey crystals
2 cups whole wheat cake flour (you can use half white flour and half regular wheat if you can't find the cake flour)
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
4 cups apples, diced

Beat together eggs and oil, then add in honey and vanilla. Mix the dry ingredients, then add to the egg mixture. Fold in the apples, then pour into a greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. You can top with powdered sugar, streusal topping, or a cream cheese frosting, but really it's delicious as is.

    On the other hand, the Professor won't eat cooked apples, so I'd end up eating the whole cake. Would probably come out as a wash. ;-)
