Rich, Delicious, and Somewhat Healthy!

Okay guys, this dessert is DELICIOUS! I made it for my family yesterday and they LOVED it!!! The kids, adults and the company we had over devoured it and managed to eat the entire 13X9 pan of it!!!

Here it is:

Rich Diced Apple Cake

2 C sugar
¾ C oil
¼ C applesauce
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2¼ C whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp allspice
½ tsp nutmeg
4 C diced apples

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix ingredients together in the order above. Grease 9X13 pan. Pour batter in and bake for about 35-45 minutes, or when toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean. Cool. Frost with Cream Cheese Frosting.

Cream Cheese Frosting
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 stick softened butter
2½–3 C powdered sugar (to taste)
1 tsp vanilla

About an hour before making frosting, get cream cheese and butter out of the refrigerator and set on the counter to soften at room temperature. Beat cream cheese and butter until fluffy. Add powdered sugar and vanilla and beat for several minutes until mixture is light and fluffy. This is great for banana bread, zucchini bread, yellow cake or any other baked dessert you would like to use it on.

Note: If you have a cookbook, make sure you add the eggs and check the new baking there were a couple of typos in the book which are now being corrected.
