Granny Smith apple cake that your granny (and you!) will love.

Granny Smith apple cake that your granny (and you!) will love.

Everything’s coming up apples these days!  You can’t drive 5 miles in northern Michigan right now without passing a road side stand flush with that day’s orchard pickins.  If you’re looking for a good, relatively low fat dessert, try this 2003 Cooking Light recipe for Granny Smith Apple Cake.  If you make it without the frosting (and why in the world would you do that?) you are golden in the cutting calories department since the cake uses apple sauce instead of oil or butter for moisture.  But, the cream cheese icing is primo (and made with fat-free cream cheese), so go ahead, splurge!
