It's been too long since I've posted a yummy recipe.
Hope you will try this yummy old-fashioned oatmeal honey apple cake from
cooking light.
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1 cup hot water
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (about 6 3/4 ounces)
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/3 cups packed light brown sugar
3/4 cup chunky applesauce
1/3 cup honey
2 large eggs
Cooking spray
1/4 cup butter
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup coarsely chopped almonds, toasted
Remaining ingredients:
1 cup frozen fat-free whipped topping, thawed
Ground cinnamon (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 350°.
2. To prepare cake, combine oats and 1 cup hot water in a small bowl; set aside.
3. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Combine 1 1/3 cups sugar, applesauce, 1/3 cup honey, and eggs in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at
high speed 1 minute. Add oat mixture; beat at low speed until well blended. Add half of flour mixture to sugar mixture; beat well. Add remaining flour mixture; beat well. Spoon batter into an 11 x 7–inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 48 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Place dish on a wire rack.
4. To prepare frosting, melt butter in a small heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add 1/3 cup sugar and 1/4 cup honey; cook 2 minutes or until bubbly, stirring constantly. Stir in almonds. Quickly pour frosting over cake; spread evenly using a rubber spatula.
5. Preheat broiler.
6. Broil cake 1 minute or until frosting is bubbly and golden. Cool completely on a wire rack. Serve with whipped topping; sprinkle with ground cinnamon, if desired.

I was addicted to your sundried tomato frittata, then baked french toast was in my little Italian man recipe holder on the counter, now I will have to write this one down too, you cause me all sorts of work!

the great thing is...it looks delicious for only 255 calories.

the bad thing is...I'd show no self control and eat about 700 calories in all that deliciousness.
