Recipe: Oatmeal Cake

This is my son-in-law’s favorite cake. He LOVES it! He requests it for his birthday every year and I’m happy to make it or let my daughter make it from our family recipe book. A.K.A. The Family Cook Book/Bible.

Mimi’s Oatmeal Cake

1 1/4 cups boiling water
1 cup Oatmeal
Mix and let stand for 20 minutes.

2 sticks margarine
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar (packed)

  2. I just made this cake last week! It was one of my mother’s favorites and also my ex husband’s! I made it for his birthday! Because I’m nice like that;)

  3. You’re making me gain weight just looking at the recipes for all this great food. I hope someone’s birthday is soon so I’ll have an excuse to bake a cake (and eat it). Stop!! Please! O.k. so don’t stop, but if I’m missing from blogosphere……look at HBL as the culprit. He says if I don’t stop licking the pc screen he’s going to ban me from your blog. grrr……
