The Sunday Recipe: Baked Applesauce Oatmeal (Cake?)

Baked Applesauce Oatmeal (Cake?)

Is it really a cake? Maybe not, but it can be used for it in a pinch, and it can certainly pass as a snack cake. I’ve had it with whipped cream on it, applesauce, prune butter, and added extra butter and maple syrup. It’s all good.


  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 ½ cup whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons light tasting olive oil
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 2 ¼ cups quick oats
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Prepare a 9X9 pan.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  3. Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk.
  4. Add the milk, applesauce, vanilla, and olive oil.
  5. Stir in the oats and let rest for 10 minutes.
  6. Add the rest of the ingredients. Stir thoroughly.
  7. Bake for 40 minutes.
  8. Cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.
