Ingredients
  • Cake Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) butter, softened
  • 1 cup (225 ml) sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup (225 ml) all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 tsp (7 ml). baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml). salt
  • 1/3 cup (80 ml) milk

Preparation
  • In a medium deep mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar.
  • Then, add the 2 whole eggs one at a time and blend.
  • To the wet mixture, add the flour, baking powder, salt, rolled oats and milk. Mix, but do not over mix, or the cake will be tough and dry.
  • Pour into 8 inch greased cake pan and bake at 350 degrees (175 C.) for 25 minutes (until springy or a toothpick comes out clean), and then follow directions for topping and complete the baking.
  • Topping Directions:
  • In a small deep mixing bowl, mix together the brown sugar, butter, coconut, and nut meats.
  • Carefully spread, dropping by spoonfuls around top of cake.
  • Put the cake back in oven for 5 minutes under the broiler until the top is wonderfully golden brown.
Comments
Great served for special breakfasts or as a foundation under scalloped apples and vanilla ice cream sprinkled with cinnamon!

Easily doubled or tripled recipe. Very totable for potlucks and picnics.

As a hint, I have swirled some cinnamon into the wet cake batter just prior to entering the oven for a zippy fun flavor.
