Healthier Apple-Raspberry-Almond Cake Healthier Apple-Raspberry Almond Cake

Voted second best cake by my hubby.   According to him that is all that you should want to know….. I’m not even sure what #1 was?  Whatever, the man loved this cake I think he ate most of it himself, though you didn’t hear that from me.

Still coming up with recipes to use for Thanksgiving and still having an abundance of fall apples I wanted to make a cake that made me think of apples, cinnamon and sugar.

I made this a bit more on the healthier side, substituting in a bit of the Almond Flour for All-purpose and using Almond-Coconut milk instead of whole milk.  I also used organic apples and raspberries and of course eggs.

If you are not a fan of raspberries you could substitute blackberries, or a mix of both.

Just try to use a tart and tender apple.
