Delicious Apple Cake

Updated on July 19, 2013
5 stars from 1 rating of Delicious Apple Cake

This cake is amazing! The tart Granny Smith apples really taste great, and along with the hint of cinnamon and nutmeg they make this cake very moist and delicious!

Delicious Apple Cake packs a heaping amount of fiber and antioxidants so you can eat this cake and indulge in your Non-Guilty Pleasures!

I use a low fat cream cheese frosting to keep this recipe guilt-free!

This cake won't last long. Like my Dad always said "Tastes like more!"

      thanks for sharing your recipe. I don't eat granny apple because they taste sour. Maybe I could replace them with royal gala apples instead? Voted up
