  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8x8 inch square baking pan with parchment paper.

  4. Pour batter in an 8x8 square pan.

  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 28-32 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.

Recipe Notes

* I simply put the apple in the food processor and shredded it that way. You could also use a grater.

Store leftover cake in an airtight container - it should stay fresh for about 3 days.

If you would like to freeze this cake, wrap well in plastic wrap, and then wrap in aluminum foil. It should stay fresh in the freezer for up to 3 months.
