Apple-Oatmeal Crumb Cake
Contributed by Diane S.

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup regular oats
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 cup chilled stick margarine or butter, cut into small pieces
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup apple juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1-1/2 cups coarsely chopped peeled McIntosh apple (about 2 apples)
Cooking spray

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup, and level with a
knife. Combine the flour and next 5 ingredients (flour through nutmeg)
in a bowl, and cut in the margarine with a pastry blender or 2 knives
until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Reserve 1/2 cup flour mixture
for topping; set aside.

3. Combine the remaining flour mixture, baking powder, and baking
soda, and add the apple juice, vanilla extract, and egg. Beat the
mixture at medium speed of a mixer until blended, and fold in the
chopped apple.

4. Spoon the batter into an 8-inch round cake pan coated with cooking
spray, and sprinkle the reserved 1/2 cup flour mixture over the
batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until cake springs back
when touched lightly in center. Cool the cake on a wire rack. Yield: 8
servings (serving size: 1 wedge).
