Almond Apple Breakfast Cake

Hello friends, I have something very delicious to share with you... 

You know that saying, “if you cant stand the heat, get out of the kitchen”… well I was about to with this one. The heat almost got the best of me in my apartment that unfortunately lacks an air-conditioner. Ninety degree weather certainly does not set the mood for baking, but I was inspired so, I hoped and prayed for a delicious end product that would make the sweat and tears all worth it. And it was! 

Here’s what I got - a slightly savory, bread-like, breakfast cake that could easily be turned into a dessert cake with a simple scoop of ice cream. This recipe is superb since it is made with nutritious ingredients like almond meal and oats. I love it because if you choose to indulge in a slice for both breakfast and dessert you can be rest assured you’re starting and ending the day, the healthy way! Hip hip hooray!

Here’s how you do it… 

2 cups almond meal 
3 eggs
1 cup rolled oats
3 large apples, peeled
1/2 cup milk 
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons cinnamon 
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
2 tablespoons apple butter
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 
  2. Wash, peel, and slice apples (very thinly).
  3. Combine almond meal, oats, sugar, and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl. Add melted butter, milk, and oil. 
  4. Whisk eggs and add to bowl. Add baking powder.
  5. In a separate bowl, toss apple slices with almond butter. 
  6. Coat a cake pan with nonstick spray. Pour in cake batter. 
  7. Layer apple slices on top of the batter. Arrange so apples cover the top of the cake. Sprinkle the chopped walnuts on top. 
  8. Place pan in the oven for approximately 50 minutes. (Cake should appear golden brown).
