This Low-Fat Apple Cake is incredibly easy to make. It has a moist, tender crumb and is packed with lemon flavor and fresh apple slices in every bite.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C (356 degrees F).
Grease and flour a 22 cm (9 inches) pan, and set aside.
Peel, core, and thinly slice the apples. Place the slices in a bowl with the lemon juice, toss to coat, and set aside.
Put the eggs, sugar, grated lemon zest, and salt in a bowl, and beat until thick and creamy.
Add the flour, baking powder, milk, and mix on low speed until combined.
Using a rubber spatula or a wooden spoon, fold in two-thirds of the apples into the batter.
Pour the batter in the prepared pan
Arrange the remaining apple slices, flat-side down, over the top. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of sugar (optional).
Bake the apple cake for approximately 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, and the top is golden brown.
Cool completely, then dust the cake with powdered sugar just before serving.
Serve warm or at room temperature. Enjoy it!
