Apple Cake

Since D & I both live to eat, we go to the gym regularly.  Actually more like D goes to the gym regularly and after the workout , he gets an apple.  As a reward for all his hard work, once we get enough apples, I bake an apple cake - seems fair enough right? Anyways, this recipe is fairly healthy don't you think?
