    Apple coffee cake Heart Smart Low Sodium

    Apples and raisins keep this cake moist — more flavor with less fat!


    5 cups cored, peeled and chopped apples (such as Jonathan or Granny Smith)
    1 cup sugar
    1 cup raisins
    1/2 cup chopped pecans
    1/4 cup vegetable oil
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    1 large egg
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


    1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
    2. Lightly coat a 9-by-13-inch cake pan with nonstick cooking spray.
    3. In a large mixing bowl, combine apples, sugar, raisins and pecans. Mix well. Cover and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.
    4. Add oil, vanilla and egg. Stir.
    5. In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda and cinnamon. Mix. Add flour mixture to apple mixture, one-third at a time. Stir just enough to moisten dry ingredients.
    6. Scoop batter into prepared pan. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes.
    7. Cool 5 to 10 minutes, slice and serve.
