Apple oat cake
This cake says “home”! Whenever we have guests on the way or we’re invited somewhere, I make an apple cake. It’s virtually impossible to find people who will turn down a fresh warm apple cake. This is one of the easiest recipes out there. You don’t need a mixer, just mix everything in one bowl with a spoon, and into the oven it goes.
Could it be any easier? Five minutes of prep work and the oven does the rest.
2 English cake pans
3 large eggs
200 grams sugar (1 cup)
180 ml oil (3/4 cup)
4 large apples
140 grams self-raising flour (1 cup)
1 cup quick / instant oats
60 ml orange juice (1/4 cup)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
1. Preheat an oven to 180°C.
2. Peel the apples and finely dice. Transfer to a bowl.
3. Add the other ingredients and mix until well combined. The batter will be thick.
4. Evenly transfer the batter to a greased pan. Bake in the oven for around 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Good to know…
Maybe you’ll be surprised to know that you don’t actually have to peel the apples, it comes out great with the peel on. You don’t need a mixer, just mix everything manually with a spoon. Regular oats don’t work well in this recipe. Freezer-friendly.
