Lazy Daisy Oatmeal Cake

Oat Meal Cake Courtesy

We are always looking for something different to take to our church Pot luck, so when I came across this interesting and easy recipe for a different cake I had to try it.  You might like to serve it at home, warm with some ice cream on the side.  Yumm!

Lazy Daisy Oatmeal Cake
Pour boiling water over the oats, cover and let rest for 20 minutes.

1 1/4 cups boiling water

1 cup quick cooking oats

In a large bowl mix well the next 5 ingredients 

1/2 cup shortening or cube butter softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs

Add the oats to the above and mix well.

Sift together

1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tsp cinnamon

Mix all ingredients.
Bake in an oblong pan in a preheated 350°F oven for 55 minutes.

If you prefer not to frost your cake- - you might like to add 1/2 cups chopped nuts to the above cake before you bake it.


1/4 cup soft butter
1/2 cup brown sugar packed
1/4 cup evaporated milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup coconut

  1. This is arecipe that I think the elderly will like if I serve to them:)

  2. I'm drooling... Okay, not really, but my mouth is really watering!

  3. Fun! I do like those first steps that have you pretty much cooking the oats with that hot water, or at least softening them. Pretty neat! I might try this soon--I have guests coming next week and this might be an interesting dessert to serve. Thanks for linking to Food on Fridays, Hazel!
