I tried making many apple cakes, and this one is, hands down, the best of them all. Soft, succulent, sweet, yet slightly sour: it is exactly what you’d want your apple cake to be.

The key to this recipe’s success is using Granny Smith apples and a vegetable slicer. The apples MUST be peeled and then sliced very thinly on a Mandoline or another slicer. I chopped the apples by hand one day, trying to keep the slices thin and the results weren’t nearly as great as what I am used to.

The recipe also requires my low-sugar brown sugar mixture. If necessary, you can always use regular sugar, in which the apple cake would not be as healthy, but will still be very tasty!
