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!

Oh, this looks really good and I love all these ingredients. This one will be a good one for the fall when apples are in season. I made Pineapple Upside-Down Cake and it was really good, too. Cake week, yahoo!!

Yum! My kind of cake - I think I've made or had similar things but not exactly like this.

Yum looks good. Ellie has a new TV show for her new cookbook. I don't know if it is available in Australia. Happy cooking.

I looked long and hard at this one but the Carrot Cake Cuppys won out. Definitely have to make this one now.
