After writing the post about State Fair Yeast Biscuits last night, I thought about another favorite “including butter” recipe from the Southwest Dairy Farmers brochures. I have picking up these brochures at their Texas State Fair booth for years. Can’t wait until October, 2017 for the state fair …when I can get some recipes at their display!
The following is the…
Too Good Not To Share Oatmeal Cake…
Covered with a blanket of pecans, butter and milk!
1 1/4 boiling water
1 cup quick oats
1 stick butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/3 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Measure oats into a mixing bowl. Add butter, cut in 1″ pieces, and pour boiling water over the top. Cover and let stand 20 minutes. Add sugars, eggs, flour, salt, baking soda and spices. Pour into 2 x 9 x 14 pan and bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes.
In a separate bowl, mix 1/2 cup chopped pecan, one stick melted butter and 1/2 cup milk. Spread over hot cake and place under broiler until brown.
Watch carefully while the cake is under the broiler!! This last instruction is definitely an important reminder to myself!!
