Tart Granny Smith Apples

Granny Smith apples are tart, crisp apples full of flavor. This cake takes advantage of their flavor profile as a spiced apple cake. It is a one-bowl mix, meaning you just need one bowl when preparing the cake mix. This recipe uses a tube pan for presentation; if using for a brunch item, drizzle with a powdered sugar glaze before serving.

If Granny Smith apples aren't available, try making this cake with other apple varieties. Jonagold or Pippins are good alternatives to Granny Smiths in this recipe. Also, while this recipe calls for grated apples, chopped apples may also be used if they are chopped fine.

Serve with cinnamon-flavored sweetened whipped cream.

    Tart and sweet, what a combination. I have never grated apples for a recipe so this sounds intriguing. This is being added to my list of new recipes to give a try. Thanks for sharing.
