This oatmeal cake is almost like a muffin, but a bit more special, and made in a cake pan of course! This is definitely not too sweet of a cake so it works great for breakfasts, and it has lots of apple cinnamon flavor throughout. The oatmeal in this cake really gives it a really nice texture, while the apples in the center are reminiscent of apple pie. You really can't go wrong with this apple cake! I like to think of it as a modern spin on an old-fashioned apple oatmeal cake.
This apple oatmeal cake may look fancy but the ingredients are very simple:
This cake comes together super quick and easily:
step one: grease and line a 9" baking pan
step two: peel and slice apples thin, toss with sugar and cinnamon and set aside
step three: in a large bowl, stir together the oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; set aside
step four: in a medium bowl, whisk together the applesauce, sugar, eggs, oil, and vanilla extract
step five: add the applesauce mixture to the oat mixture and stir until well combined
step six: fold in the pecans
step seven: pour half the cake batter into the prepared pan, then spread the apples overtop in an even layer, then top with remaining cake batter
step eight: top with turbindao sugar, extra pecans and oats if desired, then bake in preheated oven 45-50 minutes, or until cake is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean
The best kiond of apple for this cake is one that cooks nice and soft, like Macintosh. I have tried it with many varieties and while they still work; a soft apple is my favorite.
If you do not want a layer of apple, simply cube the apple instead of slicing and mix it into the batter before adding the batter to the pan. This is another delicious way to prepare this cake
Preheat oven to 350 F, grease and line a 9" baking pan
In a large bowl, toss the apples with sugar and cinnamon; set aside
In another large bowl, stir together the oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt until well blended; set aside
In a small bowl, whisk together applesauce, sugar, oil, eggs, and vanilla extract until smooth
Pour the wet ingredients onto the dry and mix until just combined; then fold in pecans until evenly distributed
Add half the cake batter to the prepared pan, followed by a layer of apples (leaving a 1/2" border near the edges), then finish off with the rest of the cake batter. Top with a few extra oats, a few extra pecan pieces, and the turbinado sugar
Bake the cake in the preheated oven about 50 minutes, or until the cake is a golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean
