for the cake -

  • 1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup apple peeled and diced (1/4 inch pieces)
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup low fat buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup low fat sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

for the crumble -

  • 3/4 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup walnuts

for the glaze -

  • 3 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter softened (or margarine)
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons milk or enough to make it a glazing consistency


  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Spray a 9-inch springform pan with nonstick cooking spray and set it aside.
  • Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Create a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Then pour all wet ingredients into the prepared well and slowly start to mix the dry and wet together. Stir until just combined. Add in the prepared apples then pour the finished batter into the springform pan.
  • To make the crumble topping, combine all ingredients for it in a small bowl. The butter pieces should be small chunks found throughout the mixture. Sprinkle over the top of the cake batter.
  • Bake 45-55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove from the oven and cool completely before adding icing.
  • To make the icing whip together the softened cream cheese and butter. Next add in the powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk, mix until smooth and runny. If needed add more milk until the desired consistency is reached.
  • Once the cake is cooled and the icing is ready, unhinge the springform pan and place the cake on a serving platter. Drizzle the icing over the entire cake then serve!
