Flavored with cinnamon and apples, Sherry Ashenfelter’s rich, old-fashioned apple cake is down-home delicious, with less than half the fat of the original recipe she shared in Waterville, Ohio .

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup sugar blend
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups finely chopped peeled tart apples
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
  • 1-1/4 cups reduced-fat whipped topping

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, beat the sugar, applesauce, sugar blend, eggs, oil and vanilla until well blended. Combine the flour, flaxseed, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and baking soda; gradually beat into sugar mixture until blended. Fold in apples and walnuts.
  2. Transfer to a 13x9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 28-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Serve with whipped topping.
