Apple Cake Recipe

Apple Snack Cake

This apple cake recipe brings back fond memories of my girlfriend's mother's secret recipe that I always enjoyed as a child. Little did I know that something that tastes so good would conceal such wholesome ingredients as apples, oatmeal, and wheat germ.
1 1/4 cups    boiling water  
1 cup    Quaker Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)  
1 3/4 cups    flour  
3/4 cups    granulated sugar  
3/4 cup    firmly packed brown sugar  
1/2 cup    Kretschmer Wheat germ, any flavor  
2 tsp    baking soda  
1 tsp    ground cinnamon  
1/2 tsp    nutmeg  
2 cups    apples, chopped  
1/2 cup    chopped nuts  
1/3 cup    canola oil  
1 medium    egg  
2 medium    egg whites  
1 tsp    vanilla  

1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 C).
2 Spray 13x9" baking pan with cooking spray.
3 In a large bowl, combine water and oats; set aside.
4 In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugars, wheat germ, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and nuts; mix well.
5 Add apples, oil, egg, egg whites, and vanilla to oat moisture; mix well.
6 Add dry ingredients; mix just until moistened. (Do not overmix.) Pour into pan.
