Lazy Day Oatmeal Cake


Servings: 9

  • 1 cup uncooked rolled oats ( instant or regular, I used rolled oats)
  • 1 1/4 cups boiling water
  • 1/2 cup butter or 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1/4 cup butter or 1/4 cup margarine, melted
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cream or 3 tablespoons milk
  • 3/4 cup flaked coconut
  • 1/3 cup chopped nuts (optional)


  1. In a shallow bowl soak oats in boiling water for 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, proceed by measuring butter and sugars into beater bowl and beating until light.
    Beat in eggs and vanilla.
  3. Sift and measure flour, sifting again with the soda and spices.
  4. By this time the oats will be soaked and cool.
  5. Remove beaters from the creamed mixture and fold in soaked oats.
    Sift flour mixture over and fold in.
