Found this recipe the past weekend in the Sunday paper coupons. Made it last night for my family and my DIL raved about it. I even forgot to put in the rest of the brown sugar until I had the batter on top of the apples. I scooped it back off and added the sugar, but the recipe says to stir "just until moist". Oops. I will definitely be making this again and will follow directions exactly. Enjoy.
- 3⁄4 cup quick-cooking oats
- 3⁄4 cup warm apple juice (I used apple cider)
- 2 tablespoons oil (recipe calls for Enova Oil)
- 2 large egg whites
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon margarine
- cooking spray
- 1 cup packed brown sugar, divided
- 1 large granny smith apple, peeled and thinly sliced (about 1 1/2 cups)
- 1 1⁄4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Combine oats, apple juice and oil in a small bowl; let stand 10 minutes. Stir in egg whites and vanilla.
- Pour margarine in the bottom of a 9-inch cake pan coated with cooking spray.
- Sprinkle 1/4 cup brown sugar. Arrange apple slices spoke-like on top of brown sugar, working from the center of pan to edge.
- Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife.
- Combine 3/4 cup brown sugar, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg in a large bowl, stir with a whisk. Add oat mixture; stir just until moist. Pour batter into prepared pan.
- Bake at 350°F for 40 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
- Cool in pan 10 minutes. Place a plate upside down on top of cake; invert onto plate. Cut into wedges. Makes 8 servings.
