Apple pie cake

We have made this apple pie cake before, but this time we added some modifications - mainly just added raisins and nuts. It turns out great every time and is a great use of apples - even ones that are have been laying around for a while (maybe wrinkly but still good!)




Ingredients:

1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
4 eggs
3 apples - you can peel them if you want, but don't have to
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup nuts (we used pecans) 

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 F
2. Beat eggs and sugar in a stand mixer. Slowly Add flour.
3. Mix in apples, raisins and nuts by hand.
4. Spray a pie pan and pour pie cake mixture into it.
5. Bake for about an hour until toothpicks comes out clean. 

What we liked:

Super easy to make and great use of apples!

What we didn't like:

Nick actually didn't like the raisins...he thinks they are too squishy!

What Kaspian thought about it:

He is not a fan of pie cakes. However, Astrid loves them!! But then again, she loves any sweet!

Next time:

Leave the raisins out for Nick.
