Namesake recipe, aka "Buttermilk Apple Cake".
I was going to post this in Women's, but I thought the guys would like it too.
• 1/4 c. soft margarine
• 2/3 c. packed brown sugar
• 1 1/2 c. buttermilk
• 1 c. all purpose flour
• 1 c. whole wheat flour
• 1 tsp baking powder
• 1 tsp baking soda
• 1 tbsp cinnamon
• 1/2 tsp salt
• 2 medium apples, cored and finely chopped, ~ 2 1/2 c. (I leave the skins on for more fiber. coasting, you may peel them as you reportedly have enough .)
• Optional: flax, wheat germ
Beat together margarine and sugar until combined; beat in buttermilk. Add flours, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and apples; mix until combined. Spread evenly in 8-9" square pan or 2-2.5 L bundt tin.
Topping: Combine 1/4 c. brown sugar with 2 tsp cinnamon and 2 tbsp chopped nuts or 1/4 c. coconut. Sprinkle over batter. Bake 350 F for 40-45 min until toothpick comes out clean. (I have to bake the hell out of it, usually takes at least an hour in my crappy oven.)
As made above, contains approx 200 cals per piece, 5 g fat, 170 mg sodium, 4 g protein, 35 g carbs. (Comes from a "heart-healthy" recipe book.) Am currently experimenting with substituting some canola oil for margarine and yogurt for buttermilk.
Makes 12 servings, or a snack for KT.
