• 1 cup cake flour
• 1 cup all purpose flour
• 1½ tablespoons baking soda
• ¼ tablespoon cinnamon
• ¼ tablespoon ground ginger
• 1 tablespoon vanilla
• ¼ tablespoon almond extract
• 1½ cups sugar
• 8 tablespoons softened butter (1/2 cup or 1 stick)
• 2 large eggs
• 4 cups chopped Granny Smith apples
• 1¼ cups Bunnery Natural Foods Original Granola*
• ½ cups lightly toasted sliced almonds
• cinnamon sugar
• honey to taste
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9” by 9” baking pan with non stick cooking spray.
Sift all dry ingredients together. Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs and mix another minute or more. Add extracts and mix well. Add sifted dry ingredients and incorporate, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Fold in apples and then granola and sliced almonds.
Pour into pan, smoothing to edges. Sprinkle generously with cinnamon sugar. Make sure the sugar has a good punch of cinnamon. Bake about 40 minutes or until just done. Remove from oven and immediately, while still hot, squeeze honey to taste over the top and sprinkle a small amount of extra granola over the surface. Let cool slightly and serve warm. Slices of Apple Granola Breakfast Cake make a great snack for a school lunch, and try toasted the day after for a quick, delicious breakfast.
