Feature Friday - Oatmeal Cake with Coconut Walnut Frosting

Many years ago I had my a roommate introduce me to this cake.  I thought it was absolutely divine, but later I lost the recipe.  Then the other day I spotted it HERE on the Mother Huddle.  I was thrilled.  It was the long lost cake recipe!  Hallelujah!


I decided to make it for my dad's birthday last week.  It was a crowd pleaser.  I wish I could give you a slice.  I guess a virtual slice will have to do.


I feel like this post needs another picture, but I figured you probably didn't want to see one of me laying on the couch with the top button of my pants undone because I ate too much cake.  Not pretty :)  If you want to try the recipe you'll find it HERE.  Thanks for sharing it with us Maria!

And thank YOU for reading.

Wow! I haven't even thought about that cake in years! I found it 30 yrs. ago when I was first married in Joy of Cooking, love it & made it often. Maybe it's time to make it again.

This looks like one of my favorite cakes. We call it O' Boy Oatmeal cake. Now I'm craving it.

Mmm yum! I make a really similar cake but with sunflower seeds instead of oatmeal. One of my mom's friends gave her the recipe in the 70s, "Sunny Oatmeal Cake". Love it!
I made it a few months ago and one of my dogs decided that she loved it to and ate about a third of it. Thats what I get for leaving it too close to the edge of the counter!

That is such a yummy cake, I tried making it a cupcakes for mothers day. I don't think we are so into baking with oats here in England but I have been converted. Check out how I got on here http://www.littlepaperbees.com/2011/04/mothers-day-baking.html

Um...Wow. So I saw this the other day and thought I needed to find a reason to make it. I was in charge of a desert for my recipe group with my friends and can I just say AMAZING! It was gobbled up and I am going to start making it weekly (or daily...) thanks for sharing!
