Apple Cake

Ummm, apple-icious

Apple Cake

• 1/2 pound of butter, softened

• 1 1/2 cups plus

• 1 tablespoon of honey

• 5 eggs, beaten

• 3 tablespoons of vanilla

• 1 cup of yogurt (or buttermilk)

• 2 1/2 cups of unbleached flour

• 2 cups of whole wheat pastry flour

• 2 teaspoons of baking powder

• 2 teaspoons of baking soda

• 1 teaspoon of nutmeg

• 4 teaspoons of cinnamon

• 3/4 cup of chopped walnuts

• 3 1/2 cups of chopped apples, mixed types

Cream the butter and honey together until smooth. Add the beaten eggs, vanilla, and yogurt, and stir well. In a separate (large) bowl, combine the flours, baking powder, baking soda, and spices. Add the butter/honey mixture, the chopped walnuts and the apples, and stir everything together. Pour the batter into two greased 9″ round pans, and bake at 350°F for about 45 minutes, until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove the pans from the oven, let the cakes cool, and serve portions with whipped cream.
