I made this in a cast iron skillet, but you can make it in a normal cake pan as well. Another option, would be to make this as muffins. The baking time would be about 18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center, comes out clean.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Bake Time 35 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 c unbleached, all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/16 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 c (1/2 of a stick) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 c brown sugar
  • 1/2 c real maple syrup
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 apple, cored and diced (I used a Granny Smith apple, but you can use any baking apple)
  • 1 c rolled oats (steel cut can work as well)
  • 1/3 c chopped pecans
  • FOR THE GLAZE:
  • 1/4 c powdered sugar
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 Tb real maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. (325 if using a glass baking dish)
  2. Grease and flour an 8 or 9 inch baking pan - round or square. You can also bake it in a cast iron skillet as I did. Instead of greasing and flouring, you can also use baking spray or my baking spray replacement. (See the link in the post with this recipe.) Set it aside for now.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Whisk those together and set it aside for now.
  4. In your mixing bowl, beat the butter, maple syrup and brown sugar together until they are fluffy.
  5. Mix in the egg and vanilla extract.
  6. Fold in the rolled oats.
  7. Add in the diced apple and chopped pecans and fold it all together.
  8. Spread the cake batter in your prepared baking dish.
  9. Bake the cake for 35-40 minutes, or until it tests done when a wooden toothpick is inserted in the center.
  10. Place the cake on a rack to cool, and prepare the glaze.
  11. In a small, combine the powdered sugar, cinnamon and vanilla extract. Add in the maple syrup and whisk the glaze ingredients together. Add a tiny bit of maple syrup if needed to make a nice, drizzly glaze.
  12. Drizzle the glaze all over the top of the cake.
  13. Enjoy!

  1. Hi Constance, I am wanting to make the maple apple oat cake – can I use old fashioned oats ( not quick cook) in stead of rolled oats – can’t find in my area and don’t want to wait for Amazon. I hope so and hope to get to Hartselle for lunch again soon. Freight House is calling our names….. Love to you my friend, Patricia
