Moist Apple-sauce Almond Flour Cake and Muffins

My  indulgence is..... either cake with my coffee in the mornings, or chocolate covered almonds will suffice.  If I am being a good girl then eggs and turkey bacon or fruit and peanut butter on toast, but often- cake it is!!

Time for cake today!  I made an adapted version of my banana nut bread recipe from my Grannie.  Instead of banana, I used apple sauce, and instead of regular white flour, I used almond flour.  The recipe I made is as follows:

3 cups sugar 
(part powdered sugar cause that is what I had) 
2 cups applesauce
4 eggs

I mixed that up.

Then whisk together:

2 cups almond flour
1 cup regular flour
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Next, incorporate the dry ingredients into the egg and sugar mixture, alternately with 

1 cup vegetable oil

I put part of the batter into the bundt pan and the other part, I added plumped raisins and chopped walnuts.

I baked it all at 350*.  The muffins were done in 30 minutes.  The bundt cake was done in about 40 minutes.  The muffins were DELICIOUS !!  

The cake was VERY yummy as well, but it did not come out all in one piece.  Some stuck to the pan.  I am of the opinion that if I had let it cool in the pan before I loosed it and tapped it out, then it would not have come out so messily, but I was feeding two busy and hungry teenage girls.  I hurried, and did not let it cool.

Some left-over cream cheese icing from daughter's birthday cake, made a nice tasty garnish!
