How to make a super moist apple cake?

This cake is really ultra moist! And my secret? This time, it’s not the amount of butter like in my Ultra Moist Marble Cake, in this recipe, there is not even 100 g of butter. No, this recipe is much healthier!

My #1 secret is adding lots of apples. In this recipe, there are 6 apples. These are cut very thinly, so that they will melt during cooking and give back juice, which makes the cake soft.

In addition, I use very little flour and I replaced some of the flour with ground hazelnuts. Ground hazelnuts, like ground almonds, is lighter and airier than flour, which also gives the cake a softer texture.
