From Grandma’s Country Kitchen — Oatmeal Cake

Yet another recipe that I have not tried. I don’t like oatmeal or coconut. If someone asked me to make this for them though, I would. If I remember correctly, this may have been one of Grandpa’s favorites.


1 cup quick oats, pour 1 1/4 cup boiling water over it. Add 1 stick oleo (margarine). Cover and let stand 20 minutes.

Then add:

1 cup sugar

1 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon salt

While cake is baking, mix topping.

6 tablespoons soft oleo

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup cream

1 cup coconut

1 cup nuts

Spread on cake while hot.

Broil until coconut is brown.


6 tablespoons oleo

1/2 cup sugar

1/3 cup PET milk or cream

1/2 cup nuts

1/2 cup coconut

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Boil 5 minutes.

May you feel the warmth of sunshine today!
