I found this recipe on another website. I have decreased considerably the amount of sugar originally called for and it is still fairly sweet. It is best made with Fuji or Granny Smith apples.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F, with a rack in the middle of the oven.
  2. Grease a 12-cup Bundt pan.
  3. In a bowl, sift together the flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon.
  4. Stir in the dates, nuts, and sugar.
  5. In a large mixer bowl, beat the eggs, oil, applesauce, and vanilla until well blended.
  6. Peel, core and chop the apples into 1/8" dice, sprinkling with lemon juice as you cut them to prevent discolouration.
  7. Stir the flour mixture into the eggs.
  8. The batter will be extremely thick.
  9. Stir in the apples.
  10. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 65 to 75 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the cake comes out with no moist crumbs on it.
  11. Cool on a rack for 20 minutes and then invert.

This is very good, but it tastes more like a bread than a cake. Hubby loved it. I only had 1 apple, so I added more dates. Tastes good with cream cheese spread on it.

wow, there's a lot going on in this cake!! Nice and moist with a good cinnamonny taste, love the bits of apple with the dates and nuts. I cut the sugar back even further to 1 cup of splenda, it was just right. Didn't have any walnuts in but did have some filberts that worked very nicely. I will be making this one again, thanks for sharing a good one.
