  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Generously grease a 10-inch tube pan with a removable bottom.
  2. Combine rolled oats, flax seeds, and 1/2 cup brown sugar in a bowl. Stir flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a separate bowl. Beat butter in a third large bowl with an electric mixer until creamy; beat 1/2 cup brown sugar and white sugar with butter until mixture is fluffy, about 5 minutes. Beat eggs, one at a time, into butter mixture, incorporating the first egg before adding the next one. Stir in vanilla extract.
  3. Stir flour mixture into butter mixture in several additions, alternating with sour cream and beating well after each addition, until batter is smooth. Stir 1 chopped apple into batter. Pour half the batter into prepared tube pan and spread 2 apples cut in slices over batter. Sprinkle half the oat mixture over apple slices. Pour remaining batter into tube pan and sprinkle remaining oat mixture over top of cake.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Let cake stand in the pan for 30 minutes. Loosen sides of cake with a thin spatula or knife. Let cake cool completely and lift from pan.

02-05-16 ~ Needing to use up some apples, I came across this recipe. I baked it in the morning and took it to school while it was still warm. Oh my, my colleagues loved it! It was done baking at...

Made this today for a church breakfast. Turned out lovely and everyone enjoyed it. Dense and flavorful like an old time apple streusel. Added a hint of cloves to the oat crumble(yum). I also coo...

This recipe works well as a bunt, except the crumble topping is too dry. When I make it again, I will put the crumble in the bottom of the pan to absorb more moisture from the cake instead of l...

Delicious! I didn't have oats and flaxseeds on hand so used a generous cup broken walnuts and 1/2 c packed brown sugar. That gave it a little crunch and was quite delicious.

This is very tasty and moist, but the recipe is fiddly. I did substitute apple pie spice for half the cinnamon, and chopped pecans for the flax seeds. I was worried because it seemed more like...
