How to nail this easy and moist apple cake recipe

Not only does this reduce gluten formation, but this will also ensure that your apple cake turns out to be super moist. Moreover, I do understand that you guys like to cut down on your sugar intake. However, sugar does not only act as a sweetening agent for your cake, it also ensures that your cake is moist and fluffy. This is a moist apple cake recipe with oil. You can use normal vegetable oil for the same.
