Oatmeal Snack Cake...

I am sadly aware that there are many people in this world that do not love (or even like!!!) oatmeal.  I can't understand why.  I mean there's oatmeal cookies, granola, baked oatmeal, chocolattes, strawberry oatmeal bars, oatmeal pancakes, many different flavored oatmeals and MORE!!!!  (and I just SADLY discovered I NEED TO GET SOME OF THESE RECIPES ON MY BLOG!!!!!).  Oats, in all different forms, are DELICIOUS to me!!!!

So, when I discovered I could use leftover oatmeal in a cake, I WAS EXCITED!!!!!! Have y'all ever made a potful of old fashioned oats for breakfast only to realize you made too much?  Well, I found a use for them in case you have ever done that.  Allow me to introduce Oatmeal Snack Cake!!!!!

It's moist because I use oil, but mostly because of the cooked oatmeal in it.  Slightly sweet, easy to mix together, and really, really good with a cup of coffee morning, noon, night, late at night... you get the picture.

So grab your ingredients and get baking!!

Oatmeal Snack Cake

  • ½ cup oil 
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups cooked, plain oatmeal
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

In a large mixing bowl, stir together the oil, sugar, eggs, vanilla and oatmeal. (Oatmeal can be kind of lumpy mixing it together, but keep at it!!  It all comes together.) Then gently stir in flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon and mix well.  Pour into greased and floured 9 x 13 cake pan and bake for 35 minutes at 350 degrees.  

Good luck keeping this around long.  This is DELICIOUS and disappears quickly!!!

Happy cooking!!

Sounds good! I am trying to get my kids to eat "real" oatmeal instead of instant. This is great for those times when I make too much!

I'm with you. I love all those goodies made with oatmeal, but I love plain old oatmeal with a little fruit or a few raisins, too! Pinning this!
