What type of apples is best for oatmeal apple cakes?

Varieties like Granny Smith, McIntosh, Fuji, and Honeycrisp work well for their sweet-tart flavor and firm texture. I don’t like Gala on cakes.

Can I use instant oats instead of old-fashioned oats in the recipe?

I don’t recommend it. It changes the texture of the cake.

Can I make this cake ahead of time?

Yes. Store in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator.

Can I freeze oatmeal apple cake?

Yes. Wrap the cooled cake tightly in plastic wrap and aluminum foil before freezing for up to three months.

This cake has no saturated fats and contains oats and apples, which provide lots of fiber. It is very moist and has a well-balanced flavor.
