About Me

I have 5 girls, and one day the youngest says to me "you should create your own cook book", I haven't a clue as to how to even begin doing that, so we put our heads together and decided to create a blog instead. Cooking is one thing that I understand and love to do. Welcome, I hope you like what you see.

Oatmeal Cake

Our family really doesn't eat cake, but when this one comes out of the oven, everyone wants some. My mom has been making this off and on for years and it's always a hit.

Oatmeal Cake

1 C oatmeal
1 1/2 C boiling water (Pour over oatmeal and set aside.)
1/2 C butter
1 C brown sugar
1 C granulated sugar
1 1/2 C flour
2 eggs
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp alspice
1/2 tsp salt

Mix sugars and butter together, add the eggs. In a separate bowl combine all the dry ingredients, blend together wet ingredients and oatmeal. Bake at 350 degree for 40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

2 Tbsp milk
1/2 C butter
1 C pecan pieces
1 C brown sugar (packed)
1/2 C coconut

Bring milk, butter, nuts and brown sugar to a boil and boil for 1 1/2 minuts. Add coconut and pour over cake - this is best served warm.
