  • 4 cups sliced and peeled apples
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves


  • To prepare the apples, peel and core about 4 apples. Slice them into about 1/4 inch thick slices and place them into a large bowl. Pour the sugar over the apples and give them a quick toss with your hands and then add the lemon juice. Let the apples and the sugar sit for about 30-45 minutes. This process with soften the apples and the sugar will become liquid.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Add the oil, eggs and vanilla to the apple mixture and stir together with a spoon.
  • Add the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and cloves into the apple mixture. Combine with a spoon carefully until the dry mixture is just incorporated.
  • Spray a 9x9 baking dish with baking spray and line with parchment paper. Transfer the batter into the baking dish and bake in a preheated oven for 50-55 minutes, or until a knife can be inserted in the center and comes out clean.
  • Serve with freshly whipped cream.
