Old-Fashioned Oatmeal Honey Apple Cake
Howard Puckett

2007 Finalist:
Old-Fashioned Oatmeal Honey Apple Cake

"I've been making oatmeal cake for my family for more than 45 years. Several years ago I revised the recipe, eliminating vegetable oil and using thick, chunky applesauce for added moistness. I replaced granulated sugar with honey, which gave the cake more flavor. The original frosting called for coconut, but I chose almonds, a more healthful option."
―Barbara Estabrook, Rhinelander, Wisconsin
