Soo, apple cake. I have a love hate relationship with apple cake. I love to eat it, but apples aren’t super low carb, and I have no self control…so I typically stay away. However, my husband requested it, and since I typically make pumpkin bread/rolls for our little ones and he isn’t a huge fan, I try to oblige. The last time I tried an apple cake it was ok. The flavor was spot on, but it wasn’t cakey. It was heavy and a little mealy. Disappointing but edible. This time, I think I was ready. I have a pretty basic fruit/veggie to dry mix ratio figured out from our numerous pumpkin roll batches for little O, who (I think) has some sensory issues and will typically only eat brown/white food. Anywho, this ones a winner. {This is not super low carb due to the apples. I apologize for that. All things considered, it’s still much lower in carbs than a typical cake. It’s a treat…cut a small piece and eat meat for the rest of the day if necessary. It’s that good. Promise!}

Apple Cake

¾ cup cooked spaghetti squash – pureed
5-6 small apples, pureed uncooked
5 eggs
4 egg whites
½ cup butter, melted (coconut oil for dairy free)
2/3 cup erythritol
1 tsp better stevia
½ tsp English toffee stevia
2 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
2 Tbsp vanilla
2 tsp baking powder
1 cup (minus 1 Tbsp) coconut flour
1 cup whole egg powder
½ tsp nutmeg
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp guar gum

Mix all ingredients except coconut flour and egg powder in a Vitamix or other high powered blender. (Don’t have one? No problem. Puree your squash, grate your apple and use a large mixing bowl and a hand held blender to mix all except coconut flour and egg powder in your bowl.)

If you Vitamixed, sift all the flours and dry into a LARGE bowl. Add the wet to the dry and mix until combined.

If in a bowl already, simply sift the flours over the wet ingredients.

Grease a bundt pan really (really, really) well with coconut oil.

Bake at 375 for 45-55 minutes.

Serve with a little homemade apple sauce or it would also be delightful with a little whipped cream!
