Oats Apple Cake


Whenever I go to library I use to read cookery magazines by the way I came across this recipe gave a try. I usually do apple cake but its bit different with oats healthy too. I tried without frosting it was good with less sugar. To attract my kids added frosting.
 

Ingredients:


Applesauce
1 ¾ cup
Quick oats
1 cup
Butter (room temperature)
½ cup
Brown sugar
¾ cup
Egg
1
All purpose flour
1 ½ cup
Baking soda
1 tsp
Cinnamon powder
1 tsp
Salt
½ tsp
Nutmeg powder
½ tsp
Frosting:
 
Confectioners sugar
2 cups
Butter softened
2 Tbsp
Milk
2 Tbsp
Vanilla extract
½ tsp
 
 
 
 

 

Directions:


  1. In a pan, bring applesauce to slow boil, stir in oats; remove from heat and allow it to rest for 20 minutes.
  2. In another bowl, beat butter and brown sugar until creamy. Add egg; beat well. Combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg; add to the creamy mixture alternatively add applesauce mixture.
  3. Pour into a greased baking pan, bake in a 350ºF preheated oven for 40- 45 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
  4. For frosting, combine all the ingredients; beat until smooth. Frost the cooled cake.
 
 

Tips:

Frosting measurement is for whole cake. If you like to have without frosting add ¼ cup more sugar.
