Apple and Cheddar Cake


This is an unusual dessert – it’s more savory than sweet – and cheddar cheese and apple make it very special.

3/4 c flour
1/2 c cornmeal
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 c butter, softened
3/4 c sugar -I use coconut palm sugar
2 eggs
6 TBSP milk
1 c cheddar, grated
2 tart apples, grated

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9 inch cake pan.

Combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt in a bowl, whisk together.

Combine butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl, cream with an electric mixer. Add eggs one at a time until well blended. Mix in 1/2 the flour, 1/2 the milk, combine, then add remaining flour and milk. Stir in apple and cheese. Scrape into pan.

Bake for 30 – 40 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.

Let cool in a pan and flip out onto a rack.

Serves 8.
