  • Make sure to the beat the eggs long enough as they are the key to the cake rising.
  • Make sure to gently fold in the flour and apples. If you mix too hard, you will deflate the egg structure and your cake will not rise or be fluffy.
  • I recommend sticking with brown sugar as it adds more depth of flavor to the cake
  • You can change the apple variety, like using granny smith for a more tart flavor
  • You can also add nutmeg and cinnamon to the cake as the spices will pair well with the apples
