Super Low Fat Turkish Apple Cake

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Mirpanda

This recipe is a traditional Turkish cake that is great for morning or afternoon tea and its LOW FAT!! You can use canned or fresh cooking apples. I find using canned apples makes the cake moister and generally stays fresh longer. This recipe is great for vegans as it is egg-free and uses unrefined sugar.

Used to make this cake from an old recipe book but lost it. Thanks for having it here! It's so appley - but this one is stil in the oven! So in a minute I'll re-acquaint myself - the best bit is - so much apple. Have fun. Bobby. PS Can also be made with other fruit, I use wild damsons (at the moment have hedgerow apples in).
