Old Fashioned Oatmeal Cake

This Old Fashioned Oatmeal Cake is incredibly moist and warmly spiced with a broiled buttery coconut topping.  You’ll be wanting this cake for breakfast and dessert!

Since this Oatmeal Cake was one of the very first recipes that I posted here on my blog, and because it’s so yummy and addicting, I’ve decided it deserves a repost and some updated pictures.

My sister and I have so many memories of eating this wonderful Oatmeal Cake when we were kids.  Our mother made this cake often, and we loved to eat it slightly warmed for breakfast, although it was good anytime.

Oh my!!!  You just have to try this cake, and did I mention it takes no time to make!
