Sunday Dinner Dessert- Apple Cake

I got this recipe from one of my favorite no-sugar blogs.
I tweaked it just a bit, cut the icing amount in half and it make a great Sunday treat.

For the cake:

4 cups diced apples (I used three Fuji apples, organic from Costco)
1/2 cup butter or coconut oil (the coconut worked great!)
2 eggs
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup palm sugar
1/2 cup applesauce
1/4 cup maple syrup
3/4 cup honey
2 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

For the icing:

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons milk or cream (optional, but it does add a nice smooth taste to the icing)

Combine apples, butter, eggs, water, palm sugar, applesauce, maple syrup, and honey in a medium bowl. Combine remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Pour into a greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Prepare icing either during the final minutes of baking or once it comes out of the oven. Put butter, honey and maple syrup in a small saucepan. Over medium heat, bring to a boil. Boil, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes. Add milk and boil 1 minute more. Pour over hot cake.

Cool to warm before slicing. Enjoy! (We didn't get to the cool part, but it was so tasty)

This recipe would be great with maple/cinnamon whipped cream or some of the vanilla ice cream from the next post.

Happy Sunday, have a great week everyone.
