Bonnie VonBergen’s diet may get an A-plus in the nutrition category, with its heavy emphasis on fruits, vegetables, chicken and fish. But the Antioch, Ill., Spry reader always has room for dessert—at least if it’s her mom’s Awesome Apple Snack Cake. This moist treat, rich in fiber from whole wheat flour, bran and shredded apples, gets its sweetness the all-natural way, from honey. “My mom first made this cake for my brother and me as a healthy alternative to sweets,” says Bonnie, who stays fit by walking daily. “It has become a favorite with my friends, co-workers and family.” We’re sure it’ll be a hit with yours, too.
