Lazy Daisy Oatmeal Cake

As many churches will do, our ladies compiled a cook book that we could sell toward a missionary project. Several of the recipes became favorites in our family.

Mother’s OAT MEAL MACROONS with chocolate chips, raisins and nuts was always a treat we looked forward to. I think this cookie recipe was my first attempt at baking cookies for our school lunches.

Mother on occasion would bake a wonderful Oatmeal Cake, probably because it was another way to get oats into our systems. It is easy to make and it will be enjoyed by your family as well as mine.


1 1/4 cups boiling water
1 cup quick oats uncooked
1 cube (1/2 cup) margarine or butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar packed
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla

Pour boiling water over the oats in a large bowl. Cover and let set for 20 minutes.
Beat margarine, eggs and sugars, vanilla, and add the oats. Sift the dry ingredients and mix well. Bake in a 9 inch square pan, for 50 minutes at 350 degrees. Spread frosting over cake and broil until bubbly.

1/2 cube (1/4 cup) margarine melted
1/2 cup brown sugar packed
3 Tablespoon canned milk
1/3 cup chopped nuts
3/4 cup coconut

Serve warm or cold with some vanilla ice cream.

  1. This one is a nice tribute to your mom. Without her, there is no you. God's plans are wonderful, right down to a simple recipe passed from her to you.
