"Like most quick cakes, this recipe can be mixed up and taken out of the oven in less than an hour! It's also extremely adaptable - you can try many different types of apples and raw honey. A dark buckwheat honey imparts a slight molasses flavor, while a light wildflower honey accentuates the fruity flavor of the apples. Top your slice with a smear of nonfat Greek yogurt and you've got quite a substantial snack."
