Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons oil (neutral, like canola or grapeseed)
  • ⅔ cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 6 tablespoons (120 grams) honey
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1 small to medium apple, peeled & grated
  • 1¾ cups (260 grams) flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Generous ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 4 teaspoons orange juice, preferably fresh squeezed
  • Freshly grated rind of 1 small orange (zest & white pith)
  • Freshly grated rind of ½ lemon (zest & white pith)
  • ⅓ cup walnuts, toasted & chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325ºF. Grease & flour the sides of an 9-inch springform pan or round cake tin; line the bottom with parchment.
  2. Add the oil, sugar, eggs, and honey to a deep bowl. Whisk until well blended.
  3. Add the apples, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, orange & lemon zest, and walnuts. Stir to mix; the batter will be a bit thick.
  4. Spoon into the prepared cake tin. Bake until golden, edges pull slightly away from the side, and a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean, 55 to 60 minutes.
