one 8" square or 9" round cake


Choose your measure:

  • 1 1/2 cups sprouted wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter or vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup grated apple; about 1 medium apple
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease an 8" square pan or 9" round pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients until evenly incorporated.
  3. Add the milk, butter or vegetable oil, vanilla, and egg, and whisk the batter together until well blended.
  4. Fold in the apple and pecans, just until evenly distributed.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake the cake for 25 to 35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and the center of the cake springs back when pressed.
  6. Remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan on a rack until ready to serve.
