NSA Apple Cake ~ Marilyn

No Sugar Added Fresh Apple Cake

3 eggs
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce1/2 cup canola oil
2 cups Nature's Crystals sugar substitute (Splenda will NOT work)
1 1/4 cups low carb flour (I use almond flour)
1 1/4 cups self rising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 large apples, cored and grated (I use Granny Smith and grate them in food processor)
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans or walnuts
1/4 cup I can't Believe its not Butter
1/2 cup Nature's Crystals Brown Sugar Substitute
1/3 cup skim milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pam or Baker's Secret a rectangular pan or bundt pan. Blend eggs, applesauce, oil and white Nature's Crystals until creamy. Mix baking powder, soda and salt into almond flour and then into self rising flour and add to batter a little at a time. Batter will be very stiff. Fold in apples and 1 cup nuts.
Bake for 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into center of cake comes out clean. Let cool 30 minutes, then remove from pan if a bundt pan was used.

Topping:Melt the I Can't Believe its not Butter, the brown sugar substitute, and the skim milk in a saucepan over high heat. Bring to boil for 2 minutes, add remaining nuts and boil another minute. Pour over cooled cake.
