Recipe: Apple Harvest Cake
3 cups of almond meal
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 cup of grated carrot
1 cup of grated zucchini
1 cup of unpeeled, chopped (1/4 in) apple, I used a combination of red/green
Preheat oven to 350.
In a medium bowl, combine almond meal, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, carrots, zucchini and apple.
In a small bowl, combine olive oil, honey, vanilla and eggs. Mix well.
Add the wet ingredients to the almond mixture.
Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit into the bottom of your 9 inch cake pan. This will allow the cake to come out of the pan much easier.
Spray the sides of the cake pan with Pam.
Add you mixture to the cake pan and bake.
Bake for 45 minutes. Remove and cool for 10 minutes in pan. Remove cake to wire rack to cool completely.
Frost the cake with Applesauce Brown Sugar Frosting (recipe below).

This is enough frosting for one layer on top of the above cake. You will need to double this recipe if you make two layers of the Apple Harvest Cake.
1 (8oz) container of mascarpone cheese
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons apple sauce
In a medium bowl whip together brown sugar and mascarpone cheese.
