1 stick (4 oz) unsalted butter, softened
½ cup and 2 tablespoons agave syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 large eggs
1 cup and 2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 large apples, cored, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line an 8- to 9-inch pan with parchment paper.

Using an electric mixer mix the butter, agave syrup, and vanilla until well combined. Add the eggs and mix again.

Combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a separate bowl. Add them to the moist mixture. Mix again until the batter is smooth and homogenous.

Fold in the apple cubes.

Pour the batter in the prepared pan. Bake until the cake is set and slightly browned, about 35 minutes. Cool before unmolding.
