Apple Cinnamon White Cake

Sometimes the planets align and the first time I make a recipe and it turns out perfectly. Other times, what can I say, it is a learning experience. This was one of my learning experiences but with a happy ending.
My fellow AllStar, lutzflcat, (who takes amazing photos by the way), was the first person to make the newly published recipe, Apple Cinnamon White Cake, on Since I was drooling over her photo and she said it was an excellent recipe as written, I gave it a try.
Now I have made many cakes from scratch before, but I have never made an apple cake from scratch. So I started to make the cake as written. One thing lutzflcat mentioned that I neglected to pay attention to was to DICE the apple. I chopped it, with a few chunks included, thinking that will be good enough. I realize now that when baking I need to pay attention to details, like dicing vs chopping, in recipes. Iā€™m primarily a cooker who occasionally bakes as well. Usually, in cooking eyeballing it is close enough. I thought everything was good.
I made a couple of other changes to lighten up the recipe. In all my baking now I use Whey Low Sugar Replacement because it is the best sugar substitute I have tried. Of all the sugar substitutes, I think it tastes the closest to sugar and has only about 25% of the calories. It is the only sugar substitute that fooled my family. I baked a carrot cake and they thought I was kidding when I said I used a sugar substitute. They were sure it was the real deal. I learned of their product from an online weight loss group, I tried it and loved it. So now I use Whey Low all the time. The other change I made was to use white whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour. I use that in quite a bit of my baking now when I do bake. If you have not tried it before, start with substituting 25% white whole wheat flour for all-purpose flour. You may have to bump up the amount of liquid, in this cake milk. I have already included an additional 1/4 cup milk in the ingredients.
