Honey Apple Cake with Walnuts

Honey Apple Cake with Walnuts

You’d never know this kosher-for-Passover cake was gluten-free! Grated apple makes it super moist, while walnuts add a pleasing crunch. Pair with tea or coffee for a delightful afternoon snack.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.


Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

  • 1 cup (160g) grated apple
  • 1 cup (100g) almond flour
  • ¼ cup (30g) walnuts, chopped
  • ¼ cup (75g) honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • powdered sugar, optional


  1. Place all the ingredients except powdered sugar into a large bowl and mix until fully incorporated. Lightly spray the Anyday dish with vegetable spray, then line the bottom with a fitted cutout piece of parchment paper. Pour the batter into the dish.
  2. Cook uncovered in the microwave for 7-8 minutes, or until the apple cake is bouncy to the touch and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  3. Allow to rest for 1 minute. Run a knife around the edges of the bowl to loosen. Place a flat serving plate on the bowl and carefully flip the vessel to unmold the cake.
  4. Remove the parchment paper and allow cake to cool before cutting.

Serving suggestions & tips

  • Top with a simple lemon glaze for a decadent twist.
  • Add chocolate chips to the batter for a sweeter twist.
  • If apples are unavailable, use firm pears.
