I made this wonderful coffee cake for breakfast this morning and thought I would share it with you. It is a moist, cake made with oatmeal and fresh apples. A great way to get your kids to eat their oatmeal. I love this recipe since it is just so very easy to make. Yum!. Hope you enjoy.
Apple Oatmeal Coffee Cake (Oven 350 – 8×8 greased baking pan)
1 cup of unbleached flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup sugar (I use 1/2 sugar and 1/2 splenda or stevia)
1 cup oats (regular Quaker oatmeal)
1/2 cup vegetable oil (not olive oil)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup peeled and chopped apple
1/2 cup chopped nuts (Optional)
1 cup powdered sugar
2-3 tablespoons of milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
Mix all dry ingredients. Add the remaining ingredients. This mixture will be thick like a dough rather than a batter. Pour and spread into the greased baking pan. Bake for 35 minutes. Remove from oven. Mix the glaze in a small bowl and pour over warm cake. Let cool. Cover to store. Cut into squares. Serve warm or cold.
