  • Peel, core and chop the apples. Place in a bowl and stir through brown sugar. Set aside.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat the eggs and sugar on high for about 2 to 3 minutes, until light yellow, thickened and about tripled in size.
  • Lower the speed to low and beat in the vanilla and flour.
  • In a small bowl, quickly mix the baking soda and vinegar and add it to the batter. Mix batter gently.
