Spice cake has a deeper flavor than most cakes. Often times, adding fresh produce such as carrots or apples provides a sweet touch that goes wonderfully with the flavor of the spice cake. The key to adding apples to the batter is to cut the apples consistently to ensure that the cake is evenly layered with them. While this could be done using a knife, there is a method you can use that is much quicker and yields apples that mix into the batter evenly to create a delicious cake.

Things You'll Need

Wash two green apples. Core the apples and cut them in half.

Run each apple half over the larger holes on a box grater until all apples have been shredded.

Stir the grated apples into the spice cake batter, using a spatula to evenly distribute the apples throughout.

Bake the cake as usual.
