Healthier farfel Cake With Applecherry Filling
This is based on a recipe in the original Heimishe Nitre Cookbook, that has a nut filling made with the 6 egg whites that you don't use for the crust. My family doesn't like the nut filling, so I substitute an apple filling (I also fill part with cherry pie filling for those who don't like apple) I also substituted some healthier ingredients...
I don't like to waste so I use the extra 6 egg whites many times in a different recipe: Low-Fat Apple/Cherry Cake
6 egg yolks
2 sticks margarine
1/4 cup canola oil
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 package vanilla
4 cups *white whole wheat flour
1 cup regular flour
For filling:
6 McIntosh apples
1 cup natural unsweetened apple sauce
Cherry Pie Filling

Helpful Hints
The original recipe had 5 cups regular flour. I really find white whole wheat flour* much lighter in texture/taste than regular whole wheat flour, so I substituted 4 cups. I left 1 cup regular flour, in case it would need it. (Next time, maybe I'll try all white whole wheat).
The original recipe called for 3 sticks of margarine. Since this dough needs to be firm enough to create "farfel", I left 2 sticks, and only substituted the last one for oil. The original recipe called for a cup of sugar. The dough is sweet enough with 3/4 cup.
