This is another recipe that I’ve tweaked a little — okay, okay, I messed up and had to improvise. But it still came out great! Crunchy, light and not too sweet.
- 3 cups peeled apples, sliced
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
- 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg, at room temperature
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/2 cup granola cereal
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Grease and flour an 8 inch square baking dish.
- In a medium bowl, toss together the apples, butter and brown sugar. Let this stand while you prepare the batter.
- In another medium bowl, stir together both flours, the baking powder and the salt.
- In a large bowl, beat the egg then add the sugar, oil and vanilla. Beat until combined.
- Stir the flour mixture into the egg mixture then spread this mixture into the prepared pan.
- Layer the apples on top then sprinkle the granola on top of the apples.
- Bake for approximately 45 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
You can make this an apple spiced cake by adding 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg to the apple mixture.
This recipe can also be made with peaches (which was the original recipe). I left out the spices except for sprinkling some cinnamon on top of the apples.
Hope you enjoy this simple recipe which I found in one of my favorite cookbooks, 1000 Vegetarian Recipes.
