Easy Apple Cake

This is my go to dessert to bake because it’s tasty, simple and healthy (because apples are healthy, right?). Give it a try!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups diced apple (approx. one large apple)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup canola oil (you can swap 1/2 of this for applesauce)
  • 1 heaping teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup powdered sugar (for the icing)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice (for the icing)

Apple Cake MixDirections:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl: sugar, brown sugar, flour, baking soda & cinnamon.
  3. Dice apple(s). Mix in with dry ingredients.
  4. Stir in oil and egg until well mixed.
  5. Put in a greased pan (I used a round 8 x 8 pan) & bake for 35 minutes.
  6. In a small bowl, mix the powdered sugar and lemon juice to make icing. It should have a squishy, not runny consistency.
  7. Using a spatula, scoop the icing into a plastic sandwich bag. Make a small cut in the corner of the bag & drizzle the icing on the cake.

Enjoy!
