1 9-inch square cake


  • 2 ½ cups whole wheat pastry flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 pinch nutmeg

  • 2 medium apples, peeled and sliced

  • 2 plums, peeled and sliced

  • 2 teaspoons butter, melted

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • ½ cup applesauce

  • cup orange juice

  • ¼ cup oil

  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten

  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 3 tablespoons white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch square baking pan.

  2. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg into a large bowl. Toss 1/2 of the apples and 1/2 of the plums into the flour mixture. Place remaining apples and plums in a second bowl and toss with melted butter.

  3. Mix together sugar, applesauce, orange juice, oil, eggs, ginger, and vanilla extract in a third bowl. Mix together sugar and cinnamon in a small, fourth bowl.

  4. Fold applesauce mixture into the flour mixture until just moistened. Pour 1/2 of the batter into the prepared baking pan and layer with apples and plums. Pour remaining batter on top and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 50 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Margarine may be used in place of butter, if preferred.
