I can't believe how many people are obsessed with a recipe name, Raw Apple cakes have been around a very LONG time, the name simply states that raw apples are put into the batter instead of cooked, get over it already. By the way not matter what you call it it is truly one of the best cakes ever, after all a rose by any other name ...
I got this recipe from a friend who's mother use to make this. She too called it Raw Apple Cake. I wanted to save this on Recipezaar and saw that it was already posted. The only thing her recipe has different is adding 1 C. Raisins. She also puts on a glaze of: 1/2 c butter, 3/4 c light brown sugar, 1/8 c milk, 1/2 tsp vanilla. Cook over low heat until just melted. Pour glaze over warm cake. This cake is so good and our family's new favorite!
I agree! VERY MISLEADING. We are looking for actual raw recipes, with raw vegetables and fruits. I don't understand why it would be called raw apple cake anyway.
A very misleading title, since this isn't a raw recipe. I'm sure that doesn't bother most people, but for those of us searching for true raw food recipes, it's very misleading.
This is a GREAT and simple apple cake recipe. I didnt care if it said raw apples and it was cooked apples. It's simply a very good cake. I also used the brown sugar, butter and milk to drizzle on top. This cake didnt make it 2 days!!! Moist and Very GOOD!!!!
I was just going to post this recipe, but upon doing a check I see that the same exact recipe is here for my aunt's recipe, except she uses dried apples instead of fresh. This cake in incredible... It is a "Must Try", especially in the fall with all those delicious apples falling to the ground! One I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
The RAW word in the title is very misleading. Raw foods are indeed raw and this one is cooked. Please correct so those of us searching for raw foods can find them on the site. Might use "Holiday Apple Cake" or something like that... Thanks...
I made this for a gathering over the weekend, let me tell you, if I wasn't already married, I could be easily by Friday with all of the proposals I got (keep that in mind single girls.......)this was an awsome snack cake and I intend to make it alot in the fall when the macs are fresh....YUM!
I am a NC gal myself, very good recipe. Next time I may grate the apples instead for easier slicing. I also added a glaze (just for looks, the cake doesn't need it) Caramel Glaze- 1 cup brown sugar, 1 TBSP. Butter, 1/4 cup milk- cook for 10 min.-cool slightly- drizzle on cake
I brough this to a party and several people asked for the recipe. I added a little nutmeg and ground clove for extra spice. Very tasty!
