This is a special recipe from the Papa Vince family kitchen. This apple cake makes a wonderful healthy dessert that the whole family can enjoy.
Here is my mom with the apple cake that she just made. If you decide to make it, please send us some photos, we'd love to see which recipes you're making at home!
Preparing the Apple Cake Filling
Cut the apples into little squares. Mix apples, cinnamon and sugar. Set apart, this will be used later as the filling.
Preparing the Apple Cake Batter
Pre-heat the oven to 350° F.
Place the egg and sugar in a bowl and start mixing until the sugar is completely dissolved and the batter becomes fluffy and light yellow. While mixing, add the orange juice, then the Papa Vince EVOO and finally the vanilla.
Add the flour one spoon at a time, making sure that no lumps are formed and then add the baking powder.
Grease a pan with butter. I recommend using a rectangular cake pan about 2 1/2 inches deep.
Add 1/2 of the batter to the pan. Add the Apple Cake Filling (above) evenly. Pour remaining batter over Apple Cake Filling.
Bake at 350° F for 70 min. Do not open the oven during the first 25 min.

This is a recipe that was shared by one of our loyal Papa Vince customers. They joined us on our Olive Harvest Tour in Sicily last year and came back with a love in their hearts for Sicily and all things Papa Vince.
We love our customers to share their healthy recipe ideas with us and we can't wait to try this dish ourselves, what better combination than chicken, spinach, tomatoes and mushrooms.
We met Teresa in Messina who invited us into her beautiful Italian home & showed us how to make some of her favorite family recipes. This Linguine recipe is one that she started making just to get creative in the kitchen. The combination of the anchovies and the omega 9 fatty acids in the Extra Virgin Olive Oil make this a health boosting recipe. If you're concerned about the linguine and want a more nutritious option, why not use Papa Vince Tumminia Pasta which is made with ancient grain and contains 6 times more fiber than regular pasta.
