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.

For an even lighter in texture cake, replace 1/4 cup of the bake mix with 1/4 cup vanilla whey protein powder!


3 cups diced, peeled tart apples (750 mL)
  (like Granny Smith® apples)
2 tbsp water (30 mL)
4 eggs
Liquid sweetener (sucralose or stevia) equal to 12/cups sugar (400 mL)
  (if desired, 1/3 cup powdered sweetener can make up part of it)
1 cup olive oil (250 mL)
1/cup low-carb milk, OR almond (125 mL)
11/tsp unflavored gelatin (7 mL)
1 tsp vanilla extract (5 mL)
21/cups Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2 OR Grain-free (click), OR (625 mL)

2 tsp cinnamon (10 mL)
1/tsp baking soda (2 mL)
1/tsp baking powder (2 mL)

Liquid sweetener to equal 1/cup sugar (125 mL)
