It’s hard to think of something that feels more like fall than this Apple Raisin Cake.
It’s packed full of delicious ingredients like apples, raisins, cinnamon, and walnuts. It’s healthier than a traditional cake, thanks to whole-wheat flour, olive oil, and honey.
That said, it’s definitely still a treat, so don’t go overboard!
All you’ll need is a big sheet pan. When it’s done, just cut into squares and serve. No fancy layers, frosting, or decorating required!
For an extra something, serve with a small scoop of frozen yogurt. It also tastes delicious with a dollop of plain Greek yogurt, as a healthier alternative to whipped cream.
Wrap leftovers tightly with plastic wrap to keep the cake moist.
