German Apple Cake
Adapted from an original German recipe, this German Apple Cake uses sweetener to keep the sugar down. The addition of strawberry spreadable fruit is delicious.
1/4 cup margarine, softened
5 teaspoons measurable sweetener
2 tablespoons strawberry spreadable fruit
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup skim milk
1 cup self-rising flour
1 medium Granny Smith apple
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon measurable sweetener
Beat margarine, sweetener and spread-able fruit together until combined and creamy.
Mix together the egg, vanilla and milk. Add to the margarine mixture alternately with the self-rising flour. The mixture will be thick. Spoon mixture into a greased and parchment-paper lined 8-inch round cake pan.
Peel and core apple; cut into slices. Dip slices into lemon juice. Place decoratively on top of cake mixture.
Bake in preheated 350-degree oven for 30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Turn out onto a towel; peel off parchment paper. Invert onto a wire rack with apple on top. Sprinkle with cinnamon and additional Equal while cake is still warm.
