2 /2 cups chopped Apple
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup Hi maize 260
1/4 cup inulin
3/4 cup Splenda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped nuts
Mix above ingredients together
1/4 cup melted butter (unsalted) or leave out the salt above.
1 egg beaten
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup water
Mix the dry and wet ingredients together. put in a greased 8 x 8 pan.
Bake at 350 until done and brown on top.
Cut into 12 equal pieces. 9.5 grams of carbs per serving
Original recipe had 22 grams per serving.
The taste was good. Next time I would use two more eggs instead of the water.

I know you all don't have all the ingredients I used, but you can get them.
The texture may be a little different, but I liked it. Served with real whipped cream with Splenda
would not add any carbs to the 9.5.

I have had a changed apple cake recipe and I really didn't like it. I don't think many people did because it was left there. I will keep mine just the way it is. Just because it contains real flour and sugar doesn't mean I have to eat the entire thing. I slice and freeze it for when I am in the mood.

In place of the flour could one substitute almond or coconut flour? Also, I don't use Splenda. I wonder how much Stevia in the Raw this recipe would require. And just to be sure, you meant 2 1/2 Cups of chopped apple, right?

You probably could. I didn't have any on hand to try. Those nut flours are so expensive. I doubt that the carb count could be lowered anymore with the nut flour. Most of the carbs are in the apples.

Apples are among the most popular types of fruit in the world.

They are the fruit of the apple tree (Malus domestica), originally from Central Asia, and are grown all over the world.

Apples are high in fiber, vitamin C and various antioxidants. They are also very fulfilling, considering their low calorie content. Studies show that eating apples can have multiple benefits for health (1, 2, 3, 4).

They taste delicious on their own and are usually eaten raw, but they are also used in various recipes, juices and drinks.

There are many different types, with a variety of colours and sizes.

Your cake sounds delicious even though I had never heard of many of the ingredients. (I am not such a good baker). Coincidentally, I had just copied the above information about apples so I decided to let you all in on it.

If you wouldn't mind, we would love it if you post this in our recipe section.

I don't know how to do that, but you can do it if you like. It should say 2
1/ cups of apples chopped.

All you have to do is go to the recipe section, and just like starting a discussion, you choose add a recipe. Then just fill in the boxes as needed. It's easy as....pie. LOL
