Rolled Oat Cake


If using leftover porridge omit fresh oats and water. Use about 1 1/2 cups of cooked oatmeal.

1 cup rolled oats (not quick oats)

1 1/2 cups boiling water

Combine and let stand till cool.

1/2 cup butter

1 cup brown sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

1 cup flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1 cup dates, chopped

1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

Cream butter & sugar – beat in oats & vanilla.

Stir dry ingredients & add to first mixture with dates and walnuts.

Beat & blend well.

Bake in 9″ pan @ 350 for 35 min.

Note… all ingredients can be mixed in the pot!

This a my sons favorite! Last time we added chocolate chips for a totally different taste. In these pictures, I’ve added slivered almonds and sprinkled sugar and cinnamon on top.


About Rita

Welcome! I'm glad to share some of what I've learned over the years with you. I try to learn new things often. Being mostly self taught usually means making a lot of mistakes first. In the kitchen this includes, baking with yeast, canning, fermenting, soaking, drying foods, grinding my own flour, making most things homemade, altering recipes to make them healthier, etc. I started sewing more complicated things, learned to knit and then taught the kids. Next was crocheting and then homeschooling. More adventures ahead...
