This dense, moist cake is full of delicate spices and - you guessed it - apples. What's not to love?


Number of serving: 4
butter, 3 sticks, softened

sugar, 1 cup

brown sugar, 3/4 cup

ground cinnamon, 3 teaspoons

ground cloves, 1/2 teaspoon

baking soda, 3 teaspoons

applesauce, 1 1/8 cups

sour cream, 1/2 cup

5 eggs

whole wheat flour, 2 1/4 cups

flour, 1 1/8 cups

salt, 1 pinch

3-4 small, tart apples, peeled & cored


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F; liberally grease a Bundt pan. Set aside. Cream butter, sugar and brown sugar. Add eggs, applesauce and sour cream; beat until thick and smooth.
  • Sift together cinnamon, cloves, baking soda, whole wheat flour, flour and salt. Gradually incorporate dry ingredients into wet mixture; set aside. Slice apples paper thin. The rounds should remain intact, but be flimsy, too.
  • Transfer 1 cup of cake batter into Bundt pan; smooth with a spatula, and arrange apple slices in a thin layer, as shown.
  • Repeat until batter is completely used, bearing in mind that the last layer should be of batter, not apples. Bake for 55-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Mine was particularly moist and began to ooze halfway through baking, but don't fret if this happens to yours!
