Skinny German Apple Cake


A really good low calorie dessert is hard to come by. Sure, the grocery store is stocked with options, and there are about 345734895 recipes on the internet….but most of them taste like chalk, cardboard, or cardboard covered in chalk.

My Skinny German Apple Cake doesn’t. My Skinny German Apple Cake tastes rich and decadent and naughty…but only has 125 calories a slice. My Skinny German Apple Cake is the answer to your Autumn-dessert woes. Get ready to peel some apples, and meet me in the kitchen.

You’re gonna need:

4 cups apples (about six medium sized apples)

1/2 cup egg whites

1 cup unsweetened applesauce

1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

2 cups Splenda

2 tsp cinnamon

Dash of ginger

1 tsp baking soda

Pinch of baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 1/2 tsp vanilla

1 cup soy flour (or quinoa flour, oat flour, or whole wheat flour)

1 cup all purpose flour

1/2 cup milk chocolate chips (optional)

First off, preheat your oven to 350F/175C. Grease a bundt pan, and prepare yourself for the shitty part of this recipe-peeling and dicing the apples.P1150483Grab a small knife (or a peeler), peel your apples, and dice them into small chunks– try to preserve all ten of your fingers, while you’re at it.

P1150486Beautiful! Set them aside.

In a large bowl, combine your egg whites, applesauce, almond milk, and vanilla.

P1150488Add your spices and your Splenda, along with your baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

P1150494Mix together and finally, if you’re feeling a bit racy, add your chocolate chips.

P1150499Mix together, and spoon into your bundt pan. I sprinkled the top of mine with cinnamon and Splenda, which resulted in a lovely, crisp topping.

P1150501Pop it in the over for about 50 minutes, or until golden and firm to the touch.
