Individual Apple Cake

My husband asked for an apple cake last night, and I modified the Muffin in a Minute recipe to come up with a quick cake for him.  With my last apple in the house, I came up with a tasty result I share below.  This recipe is not suitable for Induction due to the grated apple.  But you could just omit the apple or perhaps substitute grated zucchini instead.

    Just came upon your blog having stumbled upon the chowstalker site… what a terrific job you have done–particularly with the baked goods! I’m not the cook i used to be, but i will be trying your low carb bread & other goodies, once i go over the ingredients lists & gather my supplies. How clever of you to bake the bread flat on a rimmed cookie sheet, as you did! I had been getting the Julian Bakery Smart Carb #1 bread [which is prohibitively expensive, as you may know], but i will be trying your bread recipe very soon. Thank you so much for all your work!

      Why thank you Suzanne! I don’t post any recipes that don’t get a thumbs up from both my husband and myself! That’s the criteria for getting uploaded. 🙂 And so glad you found me on! Just recently started posting there. What a great resource!
