Sometimes an entire cake is a bit much - So here is our 'Apple Cake For Two Recipe' - just enough for a taste, and not so much that you're eating it all week. Or feeling horrible because you ate a full-size cake in one sitting.


Canola oil 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Sugar 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) (white and brown mix)
Egg 1 Large
Cinnamon 1/2 Teaspoon
Cloves 1/4 Teaspoon
Pure vanilla extract 1/2 Teaspoon
Grated apple 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) (packed, from 1
All purpose flour
Baking powder 1/2 Teaspoon
Chopped pecans 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)


Getting Ready 

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180ºC). 


Grease a 6" square or round cake pan with butter. 

Beat together the canola oil and sugar. 

Add the egg, cinnamon, cloves, allspice and vanilla and beat another minute. 

Grate in the apple and beat until well combined. 

Combine the flour and baking powder then stir into the apple mixture until just combined. 

Do not overmix. 

Stir in the pecans at this point. 

Pour the batter into the pan, and bake for about 40 minutes. 

Moist crumbs on a toothpick inserted in the middle indicate done. 

Allow the cake to cool completely on a wire rack. 


Serve with some butterscotch sauce.
