Ooey Gooey Apple Cake

Ooey Gooey Apple Cake
From my very good friend

For the Topping:
3 cups powdered sugar
8 oz. lowfat cream cheese
2 eggs
1/4 c oats

For the cake:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsps ground cinnamon
2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup butter -- melted
2 eggs
1/2 c buttermilk
2 c apple slices

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix together topping ingredients and set aside.

Combine the flour, baking soda, and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.
Mix melted butter and sugar with a mixer. Add eggs and beat well. Add half the flour mixture, mix well. Add the buttermilk, mix well. Add the remaining flour mixture, mix well. Fold in the apple.

Spread cake batter in a 13x9 well greased or sprayed baking pan. Spread topping mixture on top all the way to the edges.

Bake for 40 – 45 minutes.

TIP: No Buttermilk on hand? Make it by adding 1 T lemon juice to your measuring cup. Fill with milk to the 1 cup line. Let sit for a few minutes, allowing the milk to sour. For this recipe I just did ½ T to ½ cup of milk.

  1. This cake looks so yummy! I also like to thin out plain yogurt with a little milk to replace buttermilk, especially in cakes and pancakes.
