Message From Peggy

Apple and pear season is here again. The possibilities are endless. It's hard to know where to start: baking, canning, fermenting. I'm sharing my apple cake recipe this month. It was a fan favorite a couple of years ago. 

We enjoyed several visits recently from prospective customers to politicians. Pictured are Steve and Ramon of Strictly Gluten-Free www.strictlyglutenfree.com. They are interested in making our sprouted products available in the New York area. Also pictured is House Representative Martha Roby from our district who stopped by to discuss small business challenges.

The Girls On The Farm www.simplysproutedsnacks.com brand sprouted granola is a hit. They have just come out with a super crunchy new formulation. If you haven't tried it, you should. It's hard to beat. For more information on this healthy snack food go to www.simplysproutedsnacks.com.

Peggy's Sprouted Apple Cake

Perfect desert during apple and pear season. Try it with fresh pears or a combination of apples and pears. I've lightened the original recipe with less sugar and the addition of honey.


  • 6 Granny Smith apples (or other tart variety), peeled and cubed
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups sprouted spelt, white wheat, or oat (g-f) flour
  • 3 teaspoons aluminum-free baking powder
  • 1 - 2 cups maple sugar (I prefer 1 cup of maple sugar. If you substitute honey only use 1 cup)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 pastured or organic eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 teaspoon soda
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons whole raw or organic milk
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.Peel and chop apples (or pears) into a bowl. Toss with 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Add 1/4 cup honey, cinnamon, and nutmeg to bowl. Toss apples well and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl measure flour, sugar, baking powder, soda, and salt. Stir to blend. Add coconut oil and eggs, blending well. Add milk and vanilla, blending well.
  3. Pour batter into a well-buttered 9 x 13" ceramic or glass-baking dish. Spoon the chopped apples over the batter. Sprinkle with a little extra sugar if you'd like.
  4. Bake for one hour or until done. Great by itself, or with cream, whipped cream, or vanilla ice cream. Enjoy it lightly warmed with a pat of butter and bacon for breakfast.
