This is an amazing cake! Only minor tweaking – used 1/2 tsp soda and 1 tsp baking powder for the 1 tsp soda. Used 1 1/2 times the topping. Baked in a cast iron skillet, and lined the bottom with parchment paper. So yummy!!

This is my husband’s favorite “birthday cake”. I got the recipe from his mother when we got married and have enjoyed making it at other times when I want something quick and sweet. It is the easiest cake I have ever made from scratch and is a crowd pleaser at the office or any other get together.

You start to assemble this cake as you would any other, but when the time comes, you fold in the oats (which have absorbed the water and softened nicely) and transfer your batter to the baking dish. While the cake bakes, you mix up the icing – butter, brown sugar, heavy cream and coconut – then pour it over the baked cake and broil it until golden brown. You want to be careful when it’s broiling to make sure it doesn’t burn, but if you get it right, this icing adds so much flavor and texture to the cake; it’s the perfect complement!

Hello Cake Lovers– A couple weeks ago our Lit Group went to a newish place in town for dinner and a lot of book talk. It was “Sue Ann’s Kitchen” and you’d think you had stepped right back into the 1950’s– decorated mid century kitchen “artifacts” including a vintage double oven built in to the wall and a line up of old wooden rolling pins above a doorway. The menu featured meat loaf and homemade apple sauce and cakes, lot of cakes.

This cake is a family favorite and I have been making it for many years. I took this cake to functions at work, reunions and family gatherings. I have never brought any home with me. It is wonderful for any holiday, Easter or Mother’s Day.

Pour boiling water over oats, cover and let stand for 20 minutes. Beat butter until creamy; slowly add sugars; beat until fluffy. Blend in vanilla and eggs. Add oats mixture and mix well.
