Oatmeal Applesauce Cake With Creamcheese Frosting 

This month is a month of birthdays for me. I have many relatives celebrating birthdays on this month.Especially my grandmother who turned 90.Happy Birthday to all. This cake I specially made for my husband on his birthday. Panda I made with fondant Icing and birthday message was written using edible ink.

Uncooked Oatmeal  - 1 and half cup
Salt - half tsp
Ground Cinnamon - 1 and half tsp
Ground Cloves - 3/4 tsp
Baking Powder- 1 tsp
Butter (Kept at room temp) -3/4 cup
Sugar- 1 and half cup
Applesauce - 1 cup
Milk -3/4 cup
Raisins- 1 and half cup

  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  •  Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans. Keep it aside.
  • Mix all the dry ingredients - flour, oatmeal, salt, cinnamon, cloves and baking powder.
  • In a large bowl, Beat butter with sugar. Add eggs, applesauce and milk. Beat again until it is well blended. Add the dry ingredients and mix well. Stir in raisins.
  • Bake in the prepared pans for 30-35 min or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Let sit for 5 min, then remove from the pan and cool it well on wire racks.

Cream Cheese Frosting:
Butter softened- 1/2 cup
Cream Cheese- 8 ozs
Confectioners' Sugar- 2 Lb
Clear vanilla or almond extract - 1 tsp

  • Beat butter and cream cheese until its smooth. Gradually add confectioners' sugar, beating until smooth. Add vanilla or almond extract and blend well.
Frost the cake when it is completely cool.You can add little water if the frosting is thick. 
Store it in a refrigerator.

In cake recipes it is always advised to keep the butter and eggs at room temp.When I have to make a cake fast what I always do is that I put the butter in microwave 5 sec on each side or until it is softened. Eggs, I put it in warm water.
