Easy Oatmeal Cake
There are recipes we all remember from our childhood whether they were made by our moms or the warm toasty kitchen of our grandmother’s house. Many homes had a few staples on hand and oatmeal was one of them.
As I mentioned in an earlier post, I stumbled across some great vintage cookbooks that have some familiar recipes. While thumbing through these great little gems, it occurred to me there were so many recipes that were not familiar. Something else that I noticed were the ingredients. It seems that years ago many of the recipes had minimal ingredients that were readily available and did not have complicated instructions.
I found this easy recipe in the St. John’s Lutheran Church Bellevue, Ohio for “Oatmeal Cake” , okay I know it doesn’t sound impressive I have to admit. My husband and kids were skeptical also. However when you look around and there is nothing but crumbs on the plate the second the cake is made someone in the house seemed to like it.
Gathering the ingredients (always measure precisely)
Soaking the oatmeal (this is key to the success of the cake)
Preparing for the mixing
This recipe was very easy and extremely successful. I didn’t go with the topping mentioned in the recipe. I decided to go with a sugar glaze and it turned out great.
Do you have a recipe that was a great find from days gone by?
