I’m going to start the weekend with one of my favorite recipes from my mom! It’s a perfect fall cake on a Sunday afternoon: oatmeal, brown sugar, nuts, what’s not to love?
I used almonds in the topping for this one, because that’s all I had on hand. I hope your family loves it as much as ours.
1 ½ cups boiling water
1 cup quick oatmeal
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1 ½ cups sifted flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
½ tsp salt
Soak oatmeal in boiling water. Meanwhile, cream butter and sugars together. Stir in oatmeal.
Sift together dry ingredients; stir into oatmeal mixture. Turn into greased
and floured 9X13 pan. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and knife comes out clean in the center. Cool in pan.
Spread with topping and broil for about 1-3 minutes or until golden brown. Watch carefully!
