  • 2 large tart apples, peeled, cored, and diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking (not instant) oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Lightly grease 9×12-inch baking pan. Combine apples and baking soda in non-metalic bowl and set aside. Cream sugars, butter, and egg in mixing bowl. Beat in flour and spices, then stir in oatmeal, apples, and nuts. Pour batter into the prepared pan.

Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until cake begins to shrink from edges of pan and a cake tester inserted into center comes out clean. Cool in pan about 20 minutes, then cut into squares. Serve immediately.

  1. I am in agreement with the comments by Michael O’Brien. Sounds really good but I also look for the nutrition values in recipes. It IS important.

  2. Looks like a great recipe, I will surely try it. The only item missing is the nutrition values. They are very important to me and I’m sure, others. Thank you for your attention.
