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.

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

Here are a few more ideas on this post:

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.
