The flavors of apples and cinnamon really shine in this Apple Walnut Snack Cake. It makes a delicious after school snack, breakfast or dessert (we enjoyed it for all three 😉 ).
This recipe is adapted from my mom's original cookbook that became this blog. I reduced the fat and sugar a bit and grated the apples instead of slicing them since my picky eater does not like chunks of fruit in anything.
The result was even better than I imagined. It was beautifully moist but not greasy and was an apple flavored cake instead of a spice cake with chunks of apple in it.
Use any type of apple you like best. I used four Gala apples we got from our local CSA.
