EwE - Apple Coffee Cake - Margaret's Birthday, Let's Make Cake!
This week for Eating with Ellie, we are celebrating Margaret's birthday with cake. Ellie doesn't have a lot of cakes, but if the one I made is anything to go by, the ones she does make are good.
I chose Ellie's Apple Coffee Cake. The recipe is from a book I don't have, called Comfort Food Fix, but someone has published it online here.
What can I say - this cake is just delish. It contains brown sugar, apples, walnuts and cinnamon. It has an amazingly low amount of oil and butter (2 tablespoons of each). Yoghurt adds a little more fat and protein. Half of the flour is wholemeal flour, for a bit more protein.
Despite all of these adjustments, this is one tasty cake, especially when served warm. I served my piece with a dollop of yoghurt on the side.
To see what the others made for Margaret's birthday, check out the LYL section of the Eating with Ellie website. Happy birthday Margaret!
