Lazy Daisy Oatmeal Cake

This cake is so good and so rich! It’s really delicious. Even though the word “lazy” is in the recipe title, there’s nothing lazy about it. Lazy to me is a box of cake mix and a tub of icing 🙂 Here’s the recipe:

Lazy Daisy Oatmeal Cake


1 ¼ cups boiling water

1 cup oats uncooked

½ cup butter, soft

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 eggs

1 ½ cups sifted all purpose flour

1 teaspoon soda

½ teaspoon salt

¾ teaspoon cinnamon

¼ teaspoon nutmeg


¼ melted butter

½ cup firmly packed brown sugar

3 tablespoons light cream

½ cup chopped nutmeats

¾ cup coconut

Pour water over oats, cover and let stand 20 minutes. Beat Butter until creamy. Gradually beat in sugars. Blend in vanilla and eggs. Stir in oats mixture. Sift together flour, soda, salt and spices. Add to creamed mixture. Blend well, pour batter into greased and floured 9 inch square baking pan. Bake in preheated moderate oven at 350 degrees for 50 to 55 minutes. Do not remove cake from pan. For frosting combine melted butter, brown sugar, cream, nutmeats and coconuts. Spread over cake. Broil until bubbly. Makes one 9 inch cake.

Now for a few comments on making this cake. Use old fashioned oats, not quick oats. I didn’t have any light cream, so I just used milk and it worked out fine. (Is light cream just milk?) I also used pecans for the nuts. My cake was done in 35 minutes instead of 50 or 55.
