Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Using 'cake' part of ingredients: In a small bowl, stir the flours, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. Using a food processor, chop up the apples.
  4. In a large bowl, combine apples, egg, egg white, sugar, and applesauce. Stir together until blended. Fold the dry ingredients to bowl, until combined.
  5. Pour entire batter into a sprayed 9x9 (or 9-inch round) pan.
  6. Using 'topping' ingredients: Stir together brown sugar, flours, cinnamon, and softened margarine. Then add in oats or granola and spread evenly on top of batter. NOTE: When I bake this, I use either a package (2 bars) of Nature Valley Oats 'n Honey granola, or Kashi crunchy Almond granola bars. I take the bars and run them through the food processor. Make a delicious and crunchy topping.
  7. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean. Serve warm.

I've made this cake twice now. I like to use food storage items, so I used dried apples (reconstitute) and put some in the blender to make the applesauce. I also used powdered eggs, so my cake had a little more fat. Really like the flavors and the texture. Took it to work and they didn't care it was whole wheat!!
