Apple Sauce Snack Cake

Apple lovers, this recipe's for you. Apples have vitamin C and a dietary fibre called pectin, and regular consumption may reduce the risk of colon cancer, prostate cancer and lung cancer. Apple peels are a source of various phytochemicals and possible antioxidant activity in vitro.


1 cup cake flour
1 cup wholewheat pastry flour or 2 cups cake flour
1 Tbsp cornstarch or arrowroot powder
2 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
¾ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp allspice
¼ tsp ground cloves
½ tsp freshly ground nutmeg
¼ tsp dried ginger
1 cup light brown sugar
2 cups unsweetened apple sauce
½ cup raisins
½ cup canola or sunflower oil

Cooking Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 175°C.
  • Spray a 9x13-inch baking pan.
  • Sieve all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and make a well in the centre.
  • Mix the brown sugar and oil into the applesauce, and add that to the dry ingredients in the mixing bowl along with the raisins.
  • Stir just until no trace of flour is left, and then pour into the prepared baking tray.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until the cake just passes the toothpick test.
  • Do not undercook as it will then be gummy due to the low oil content.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes then turn out onto rack to finish cooling.
  • When totally cold, cut with a serrated knife into bars or squares.
  • Serve warm or cool.
  • Also freezes well.
