The bottom layer is a sweet oat cake and is followed by a mouthwatering layer of apples. I used Royal Gala apples in this recipe, but feel free to use whatever you have on hand. The topping is another layer of oats that creates a streusel-like topping.

I served mine with whipped cream because John ate all the vanilla ice cream. It would taste yummy with both!
