I remember my momma making this cake when I was young. While the others were out playing, I was waiting to lick the spoon.
This is one of only a handful of recipes that she actually wrote down.
Hopefully, I can make one in the near future & take some pictures of it. In the meantime, I hope you'll try it & enjoy it.

How to Make Oatmeal Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Cover the oatmeal with the boiling water & let stand for 20 minutes.
  2. Cream butter with the sugar.
    Add vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time. Beat well.
    Add oatmeal.
  3. ALWAYS measure flour, sift, then measure again. Then add the salt, baking soda & cinnamon. Add to the first mixture.
    Beat until smooth. Add nuts.
  4. Pour into a greased 8x11 glass casserole dish. (I use "Butter Flavor Crisco" to grease my dish.)
    Bake for 40 minutes at 350° or until a tooth pick comes out clean.
  5. Cool slightly & cover with topping.
    Mix all topping ingredients & spread on top of cake.
    Brown in the broiler, on 350°for 5-6 minutes, until it starts to bubble on top.
  6. For decorations, sometimes I place pecan halves all around the outside edge of the top of the cake.
    Kinda makes it look more purty.
