  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of sugar. I tried it with a sweetener and it was not as good. You can replace the sugar with white chocolate (If you have spare Easter chocolate, it will be a great way to use them).
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
  • 2 cups of flour. I used 1 cup of whole wheat flour   and 1 cup of regular flour.
  • 3 apples  (or more depending on the size) peeled and cut lengthwise

How to make this snack

Kids can help you prepare this after school snack. My daughter loves cracking eggs and mixing the ingredients. I didn’t let her slice the apples though. She is only 6 and I did not want her to get hurt. Besides, I wanted thin slices and it is hard for her little hands. 

      • In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients.
      • Add the wet ingredients and mix well.
      • Drizzle your baking pan with some melted butter and brown sugar.
      • Add the apples. Make sure to stick them together.
      • Top with the baking mix
      • Bake for 30 minutes on 350F or until it becomes brown

  Let it cool and then turn it. Or if you used the above pan, just remove the lid. This way you won’t damage the presentation.   Otherwise turn your regular baking pan and remove this after school snack carefully.    upside-apple-cake-recipe-after-school-snack This apple cake recipe is so delicious, like I said, you won’t have any left-overs! You can replace the apples with pineapples or pears. They will taste very good too.
