Let’s try a fun little snack cake that’s filled with some serious flavors. This recipe is a “healthier” option for a perfect after school snack or even a post workout pick-me-up. The recipe calls for two large apples, so each bite is packed full of Envy Apple love. To give some added dimension, this recipe was complimented with Not Ketchup Spicy Date Sauce. Trust me, one snack cake will not be enough. Who wants to try a couple Spicy Apple Date Snack Cakes?
I’m so excited to be a part of the #FreshTastyValentines blog event. If you follow me on my social sites, you’ve probably already noticed all the treats sent to me by our amazing sponsors. For the next week I will continue sharing our sponsors, AND will also share the many recipes from all the fellow food bloggers participating in the event. The sponsors included in my recipe are Envy Apples and Not Ketchup, and let’s just say, so much love for them. Technically, I received the Tangerine Hatch Chile Sauce from Not Ketchup, but I had to use one of her other flavors this time around. I look forward to creating something with her new sauce soon. Since I grew up loving apples, thanks to my Aunt and Uncle’s apple barn that was right down the road from my house. I knew my first recipe for the event would definitely include some serious apple love!
A few years back I made another version of some apple snack cakes, here is the recipe: Apple Pie Snack Cake. If you are looking for some other apple inspired recipes, here are a few more ideas: Boozy Apple Cider Cake, Apple Bread Pudding (Non-Traditional), Apple Cider Snickerdoodle Cookies (Gluten Free).
I want to say a HUGE thank you to Camilla, from Culinary Adventures with Camilla! She has worked extremely hard to make this event rock out with flying colors, and I would say she knocked it out of the park!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray cooking spray on 9 x9 square pan (or scone pan).
In medium bowl, mix together flour, hot Mexican chili pepper powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt.
In medium bowl, mix together Greek yogurt, sugar, Spicy Date sauce, egg and vanilla extract.
Add diced apples to flour mixture, then mix wet and dry ingredients together.
Pour in prepared baking dish and bake for 35-40 minutes depending on oven (cake should be golden brown and toothpick should come out clean).
Let cool and enjoy!
If you do not have Spicy Date Not Ketchup, add an additional egg and 1/2 cup sugar.
