Servings 4 people


  • 1 1/2 C whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 C butter
  • 1/2 C honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 C milk
  • 2 C sliced apples


  • Butter a pie plate and set it aside.
  • Dice 2 large apples into thin slices. Set aside.
  • Fluff whole wheat flour with a whisk, then measure out.
  • In a mixing bowl, measure out flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Whisk all 4 ingredients together.
  • In a separate bowl, measure out butter and honey. Cream the two together.
  • One at a time, add eggs to the creamed mixture. Make sure they're well combined!
  • Measure out 3/4 C of milk.
  • Take your creamed mixture and the milk. Alternate adding these two things to the dry ingredients, stirring a bit after each addition.
  • When everything is combined and you have a cake batter, spoon 1/3 of it into your greased pie pan. Smooth.
  • Take the diced apples and evenly spread them on top of the first layer of batter.
  • The remaining batter can be gently spread on top of the apples. Level and smooth it out.
  • Bake immediately in an oven warmed to 350F for approximately 30 minutes.
  • Make sure you don't over-bake this one; pull it out of the oven just after the center has set and is no longer jiggly.
  • Serve with whipped cream or perhaps a bit of hot applesauce!
