Oatmeal Cake

My Daughter and I- Oatmeal Cake

 

This may be one of the more surprising successful recipe attempts. After I baked it, I was pretty much resigned to the fact that it was going to be a failure. The ingredients are a little unusual, and, frankly, the cake isn’t very pretty.

But! It’s absolutely delicious! The cake itself is super moist and the brown sugar flavor is prominent and yummy. And the unusual, caramelized topping is delicious. This is a definitely a keeper recipe- everyone loved it. We ate it with a little squirt of whipped cream and that only added to the yumminess.

My Daughter and I- Oatmeal Cake 2

Oatmeal Cake

    • 1 1/2 cups hot water
    • 1 cup old fashioned oatmeal
    • 1 cup brown sugar
    • 1 cup white sugar
    • 1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
Topping
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 cup flake coconut

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

Combine the water and the oatmeal and allow to soak while you prepare the remaining ingredients.

Cream together the butter and both sugars. Beat in the eggs. In another bowl, mix together the flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Add half of the flour to the creamed butter mixture, followed by the soaked oatmeal, then the remaining flour, mixing between additions. Pour into the prepared baking dish and bake until set, 38-42 minutes.

For the topping, turn the oven to broil. Combine the butter, brown sugar and milk in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, while stirring. Boil for one minute. Stir in the coconut. Pour over the cake, spread, then broil for one minute.
