Apple Oatmeal Cake

1/2 cup quick cooking rolled oats
3/4 cup boiling water
1/4 cup (ca. 60g) butter

1/3 cup agave syrup
1 large egg

3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of salt

1 apple, quartered and thinly sliced
1/2 cup raisins

Serves 8-10
Preheat oven to 180C. Grease a wide loaf pan or line with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, pour boiling water over the quick cooking oats. Make sure you are using the exact measurements. Too much water may spoil the cake. Slice the butter and place on top of the oat water mixture. Let stand for about 10 minutes.

In a small bowl, combine the egg and agave syrup. Mix well. Pour over the oat mixture and stir until well combined and butter is fully melted. In another bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Combine wet with dry ingredients and mix well. Stir in the raisins and the apple slices.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for about 45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Let cool in the pan. Cut into squares to serve.
