Apple Cake

Raytheon sends out a health newsletter to all the employees every once in a while. They published this recipe and I tried it out today. It is good enough that I thought I'd share. It makes it nice that it is relatively healthy and a sweet treat--my two most favorite qualities in food!

"Fresh apple cake"

Dry ingredients:
1 cup white flour
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1 cup oatmeal
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon allspice

Wet ingredients:
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup canola oil
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar

Last but not least:
5 cups apples (half tart and half sweet) peeled and diced
1 cup pecans or walnuts, chopped

Grease and flour a tube or Bundt pan. Mix dry ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. Mix wet ingredients in a large bowl. Add dry mixture to wet mixture and blend. Add apples and nuts. Pour into pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes. Cool about 10 minutes before removing from pan. If desired, drizzle a powdered sugar and milk mixture over the cake once it's cooled.
