I made a few changes to make it more healthier. I used 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup splenda, 1/2 cup brown sugar. I omitted the walnuts. This cake is so yummy. Great texture. Thanks Doug :) Made for Zaar Star Game

This cake is not only healthy. It is moist, tasty, soft, beautiful, has wonderful texture and so on.
I our fresh apples and walnuts with strong flavor for this. I substituted the buttermilk with mixed fruit juice (a not sour kind) and it worked very well too.
I'm glad I had whole wheat flour on hand, this is a good choice!
Thanks fot the recipe.

Wonderful snack cake! A very easy to make cake that is moist and very tasty. Made using Spenda for baking, Splenda brown, Buttermilk Substitution for Baking #430334 and eggbeaters. Recipe can be cut in half and baked in a 8x8 pan very nicely. Love that the apples are left unpeeled. Will make again. Thanks so much for the post.
