When my kids were little, I used to cook more oatmeal for breakfast than I needed, just so I could bake this delicious Oatmeal Cake.I got the recipe from my babysitter who did the same thing.

Oatmeal Cake

1 1/2 cups leftover oatmeal

1/2 cup of shortening or butter

1 cup sugar and 1 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

1 1/3 cup flour

1 teaspoon soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg

Cream shortening and sugars. Add eggs and oatmeal.

Mix well. Sift dry ingredients together and add to batter. Spread in a 9 X 13 inch pan and bake at 350º for 35-40 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.

While the cake is baking, Make the topping:

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup chopped pecans

1 cup coconut

Bring butter brown sugar and milk to a boil. Cook slightly over medium heat (about a minute) Add coconut and pecans. Spread on hot cake as soon as you take it from the oven. Return to the oven for 3 minutes.

I love Oatmeal cake! Harlean's recipes looks to be about the same as the one I use.

I used to mix it in my bread batch, along with things like mashed squash, extra eggs, leftover whole wheat cereal, the last bit of cereal in the box, extra raisins, etc. You get something different every time, and it's always good! With squash and raisins, I sometimes added an extra quarter cup of honey or sugar for each loaf. Makes the most incredible toast!

I just heard about rolling the oatmeal into balls, dipping the balls in pancake batter, and deep frying. Supposed to be delicious!

I'm sure you could add some to meatloaf or hamburger patties. We drink smoothies in the morning, and you could probably put some in them. I have a friend who always adds oatmeal to her brownies for extra fiber, and a restaurant in town puts some in their chili for an extender. Like Coreen, I add it to my homemade bread and muffins.

Well I haven't done it for a long time. But my mom use to take it and add a little brown sugar, cinnamon and then make patties and fry them in a little lard. That was back in the 40's. So crisco would do for frying now. Made a desert for us.
