    Default REC Lazy Daisy Oatmeal Cake

    CAKE:
    1 cup uncooked oatmeal (not quick cook)
    1/2 cup butter
    1 1/4 cup boiling water
    2 eggs, well beaten
    1 cup sugar
    1 cup brown sugar
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1 1/2 cups flour
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon ginger
    1/2 teaspoon allspice
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon cloves

    FROSTING;
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1/4 cup melted butter
    3 tablespoons milk
    3/4 cup shredded coconut
    1/3 cup chopped nuts

    METHOD:
    Combine oats, butter and boiling water. Set aside for 20 minutes. Beat
    together the eggs, sugars and vanilla. Sift dry ingredients and add, along
    with the oats, to the sugar mixture. Beat well. Pour into a greased 13 x 9
    inch baking pan. Bake at 350F for 30 to 35 minutes, or until an inserted
    tooth-pick comes out clean. Cool for a few minutes. Then combine frosting
    ingredients, spread on cake and place under the broiler for one minute or
    until frosting begins to bubble.

    I like this cake. It's good for picnics, it keeps well and it's easy.

    Are you gonna leave a piece out for the Easter Bunny? I hear he loves
    carrots.

    Enjoy the cake!

    I'm afraid the bunny would never see a piece of cake left out overnight for
    him -- either the dog or my husband would get it. ;o}

    I haven't had this cake in years, Janet. Thanks for posting it. I recall it
    always being a hit.

    You're welcome. All this talk about recession cooking and homemade
    convenience food got me to thinking about it. I can't recall where I had it
    first or when. It is just one of those childhood memories.

    This prompted me to think of the following depression era cake (I call it a
    snack cake) that my grandmother and mother used to make on occasion. It
    doesn't really need frosting, but they would usually sprinkle it with
    powdered sugar before serving. It's spicy and moist.

    Buterless, Eggless, Milkless Cake

    1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
    1-1/4 cups water
    1/3 cup vegetable shortening or lard
    2/3 cup raisins
    1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
    2 teaspoons cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon powdered cloves
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    2 teaspoons water
    2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder

    Boil brown sugar, 1-1/4 cups water, shortening, raisins, and spices
    together for 3 minutes. Cool. Add salt and baking soda which has been
    dissolved in 2 teaspoons water. Gradually add the flour and baking powder
    which have been sifted together, beating smooth after each addition. Baked
    in a greased and floured 8" x 8" pan in a moderate oven of 325F. about 50
    minutes, or until done. Cool completely, then cover tightly and store
    overnight before serving.

    I'm going to try this. Thanks. Calling it a snack cake strikes me as just
    about right. I really prefer the texture of those cakes made with regular
    flour instead of cake flour. How about you?

    I hope you enjoy it! Yes, I agree that all-purpose flour produces a better
    texture for many such cakes. I don't use cake flour in too many cakes
    unless the texture is intended to be extreme delicate. I haven't made this
    one for a while, so now I have two cakes to make and enjoy! It's really
    nice to bring some of those old recipes to the forefront again. A lot of
    people have never tasted them.

    There are some other old cakes that have fallen out of fashion that I
    really enjoy, and I haven't made them in years. I don't know how many
    people would like them today. They include Lane Cake, Amalgamation Cake,
    Lady Baltimore Cake, and Lord Baltimore Cake.

    If you wouldn't mind, I would enjoy at least looking at them. I think I
    have seen a recipe for Lady Baltimore cake -- perhaps even have it in the
    first cookbook I ever bought, but I am unfamiliar with the others. No rush,
    that's a lot of recipes to post. But thanks for the offer.

    I don't mind at all, but I may not get to it until the weekend, as I have
    to scan and edit them in order to post them, or key them in. They are all
    in old cookbooks. The recipe for Amalgamation Cake is my grandmothers, and
    unlike any I've seen published. I prefer hers, actually. That recipe is
    still in her handwriting. I'll ping you when I post them.

    nice recipe snipped....

    My mother called it war cake.

    I have always wanted to make it but I haven't gotten around to it.

    Thanks for the reminder.

    Boy, that brings back some memories: My parents told us that their wedding
    cake had been a Lady Baltimore cake, so I made one for them on their 40th
    anniversary.

    A nice memory! Memories for me, too, Bob. My maternal grandmother used to
    bake all of these, along with a fresh coconut cake and fresh orange cake,
    for Christmas every year. Elaborate cakes around the holidays were typical
    in the South generations ago. Between large families and many visitors it
    didn't take long for them all to disappear. :-)

    Hi again, Janet <waving>!

    Just wanted to let you know that I made this cake (and a pan of
    brownies) on Easter morning, with the intention of serving them both
    after Easter dinner.

    Well, the cake was so damned good, we didn't have room for dinner, so
    I haven't even baked the ham yet. We're doing that tomorrow.

    The cake was completely GONE six hours after it came out of the oven.
    We definitely have a new cake. Crash wished there were dates in it,
    so there will be, next time. I think he gets that notion from my
    grandmother's (sorry, I don't recall her nationality) spice cake
    recipe.

    We didn't use the glaze because Crash has had this cake before and got
    sick - he attributes this to the glaze. No problem, I prefer nekkid
    cakes, anyway.

    THANK YOU!
    Carol and the Hungry Horde
