Apple Coffee Cake

Apples and raisins provide the moistness, which means less oil can be used in this low saturated fat, low cholesterol, and low sodium coffee cake.

5 C tart apples, cored, peeled, chopped
1 C sugar
1 C dark raisins
1/2 C pecans, chopped
1/4 C vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla
1 egg, beaten
2-1/2 C   sifted all-purpose flour
1-1/2 tsp   baking soda
2 tsp   ground cinnamon

 
 

  1. Preheat oven to 350º F.
  2. Lightly oil a 13x9x2-inch pan.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine apples with sugar, raisins, and pecans; mix well. Let stand 30 minutes.
  4. Stir in oil, vanilla, and egg. Sift together flour, soda, and cinnamon; stir into apple mixture about 1/3 at a time just enough to moisten dry ingredients.
  5. Turn batter into pan. Bake 35 to 40 minutes. Cool cake slightly before serving.
