Oatmeal Cake :-)

Here is a wonderful cake that we had recently. Happy cooking! :-)

Oatmeal Cake

Put 1 and 1/4 cups boiling water over 1 cup Quick cooking oats, add 1 stick oleo, let stand 20 minutes.

1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 and 1/3 cups flour
1 t. soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg

Stir all together and bake in large pan 35 minutes at 350*.

If topping is desired, mix while cake is baking.
6 T. oleo (melted)
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup cream (milk will do)
1 cup nuts
1/2 sugar or brown sugar
1 cup coconut

Cook enough to dissolve, spread on cake and place under broiler until coconut is brown. About 5 minutes.

This cake is great without frosting as well! I'm not sure if we have ever tried the frosting recipe mentioned above or not, however we do add a Butter-Cream Frosting on occasion (we half the recipe). :-)

Butter-Cream Frosting

1/4 cup butter
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. vanilla
3 cups confectioners sugar (sift if lumpy)
1/4 cup milk

Combine butter, salt vanilla and 1 cup of sugar. Add milk and remaining sugar alternately; mix until creamy. Add more sugar to thicken or milk to thin, if needed for good spreading consistency.

God bless!

Rejoice in the LORD, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright.
Psalm 33:1
