Instant Apple Cake

October 25, 2013 § 5 Comments


Have you ever had your outlets spontaneously stop working? And then realize too late that your fridge is in fact plugged into an outlet? It wasn’t a power outage. In a power outage people realize theres a problem and try to fix it. Not so with a single room outlet failure.


Thankfully, my oats and apple butter were unharmed during this fiasco. So I give you instant apple cake.

There are a couple options here. You can add in some chopped apples to better mimic a traditional apple cake, but if that goes against the whole instant part of the recipe or if it’s too awkward using only part of an apple, you can just leave the apples out. It’s delicious either way.

I personally prefer the added apples. You can just slice the rest of the apple as a snack for later or you can garnish the cake with some sliced apples if you wish. But the best part about this recipe, other than that it’s instant, of course, is that it’s breakfast approved!

makes one serving


1/4 cup gluten-free oat flour (I ground my own in my blender)

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp ground ginger

pinch nutmeg

2 Tbs apple butter

1 Tbs almond butter

1/2 tsp vanilla

1 1/2 tsp maple syrup

1-1 1/2 Tbs finely chopped apple (optional)


1. Whisk all the dry ingredients together in a microwave-safe bowl.

2. Add in the rest of the ingredients (except the apple) and mix well.

3. Fold in the chopped apple.

4. Form the dough into the shape you want and microwave on high for one minute. Allow to cool.

5. Enjoy!
