Oatmeal Cake

I’ve recommitted my cooking to healthiness again.  I normally try to shape up my cooking every spring; cooking with less refined products never hurt anyone.  I have a major sweet tooth though.  So whole grains with a little sugar is OK in my mind.  After reading lots and lots of oatmeal cake recipes here is what I came up with for a “healthy” version.  Don’t worry, you won’t be disappointed and if you need to eat it for breakfast the next day it’s practically guilt free.

Oatmeal Cake
1 1/4 cups boiling water
1 1/2 cups rolled or old fashion oats
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar

2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1 t. cinnamin
1/4 t. ground nutmeg
1/4 t. salt
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup apple sauce
1 t. vanilla
2 eggs
In a 2 cup glass Pyrex measuring cup, measure 1 1/4 cups water.  Place in the microwave and microwave until water is boiling (2 to 4 minutes).  Add 1 1/2 cups oats to the water and let stand.  Meanwhile in a large mixing bowl measure out all of your dry ingredients.  Stir together and make a well in the center of the mixture.  In the well add all of your wet ingredients.  Add the oat/water mixture.  Stir together just until a thick batter is formed.  Pour batter into a greased 9 inch round or 9×9 pan.  Place in preheated 350 degree oven.  Bake for 37 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Cool in pan for 20 minutes, remove from pan if you want to serve it that way…  top with Broiled Nut Icing.
