Oakanagan Apple Cake

I have loved baking since I was a little girl, and growing up in the Okanagan we were always surrounded by mountains of fruit in the Summer and Fall. Since I grew up in a family where wasting food was a big no-no, I started experimenting with different fruit recipes to try to make the best use of whatever was in season. I modified this recipe of my Aunty Jackies’ for Apple Cake to make it a bit healthier.

This cake doesn’t last long in my house and I don’t have the heart to tell anybody that it is actually good for them! Shhh!


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup chopped toasted pecans or walnuts
  • 3 cups grated apple
  • 3 eggs, well beaten
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup honey


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and grease a 9″ x 12″ baking pan – line with parchment paper.
  2. Mix together all dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together all remaining ingredients (apple, eggs, oil and honey).
  4. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry.
  5. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and bake for about 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.

      Hi Mona thank you! Yes if you look at the reference to the rice pudding you can, in most recipes, use a mixture of chia seeds and water as an egg substitute. Thanks for following!

    I made this cake gluten-free and vegan with a couple substitutions and it was amazing! Your posts are my newest obsession and I can’t wait to see what we’ll be making this week!
