GERMAN APPLE CAKE
GERMAN APPLE CAKE
What a delicious, moist cake – a lovely texture. It has good flavor and color due to the extra cinnamon I added. This is a great recipe to have on hand for those extra apples that last forever in the refrigerator drawer...especially when you know company is about to drop in! Quick and easy to put together, as long as you already have the homemade bake mix on hand.
3 cups diced, peeled tart apples (750 mL)
(like Granny Smith® apples)
2 tbsp water (30 mL)
Carb-free sweetener equal to 12/3 cups sugar (400 mL)
(if desired, 1/3 cup erythritol can make up part of it)
1 cup olive oil (250 mL)
1/2 cup low-carb milk, OR almond (125 mL)
11/2 tsp unflavored gelatin (7 mL)
1 tsp vanilla extract (5 mL)
21/2 cups Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2 (click)(625 mL)
2 tsp cinnamon (10 mL)
1/2 tsp baking soda (2 mL)
1/2 tsp baking powder (2 mL)
1/4 tsp salt (1 mL)
3/4 cup chopped pecans, optional (175 mL)
(I didn’t use them)
8 oz regular cream cheese (250 g)
2 tsp unsalted butter (10 mL)
Carb-free sweetener to equal 1/2 cup sugar (125 mL)
1/4 cup powdered eryritol, OR (60 mL)
more of your sweetener, OR 6 coffee sweetener packets
Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
In casserole dish, place apples. Sprinkle water over apples and place lid on casserole dish. Microwave 2 minutes or until apples are just barely tender. Drain apples in colander over a bowl. Set aside.
In food processor, process eggs, sweetener, olive oil, low-carb milk, OR almond milk, unflavored gelatin and vanilla extract. In large bowl, combine Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add dry ingredients to food processor; process. Stir in cooked, drained apples. Spread batter in 9 x 13-inch (2 L) baking dish. Bake approximately 30 minutes, or until a knife inserted in cake comes out clean. Frost when cool.
Frosting: In food processor, process cream cheese, butter, sweetener and eyrthritol, or more sweetener.
