This cake has rolled grains, 10 grains “grits”, apples, raisins and walnuts. All . To top it off, there is no eggs, very little sugar and no butter or oil. Yet it tastes great!

Now on the tweaks: I added quite a lot of apples for the cake. I love it, but it makes the cake a bit crumbly. If you want a firmer slice, you should consider adding less apples.

Also, I added very little sugar and used tart apples. If you like your sweets on the sweeter side, feel free to up the sugar or change the apples to a sweeter variety.

Whatever you do, enjoy this cake: it is almost guilt free!
