Lazy Day Oatmeal Cake

TOP Reviews:

This is an amazing cake! Only minor tweaking – used 1/2 tsp soda and 1 tsp baking powder for the 1 tsp soda. Used 1 1/2 times the topping. Baked in a cast iron skillet, and lined the bottom with parchment paper. So yummy!!

This is my husband’s favorite “birthday cake”. I got the recipe from his mother when we got married and have enjoyed making it at other times when I want something quick and sweet. It is the easiest cake I have ever made from scratch and is a crowd pleaser at the office or any other get together.

I’d never tried Oatmeal Cake before, but I don’t know why because I am a complete oat addict; I have oatmeal every single day for breakfast and this cake was amazing! I’m not a huge coconut fan, even though the topping was delicious, I preferred it without, but that’s just my taste buds! It’s a great recipe! ๐Ÿ™‚

Very tasty and easy to make! Just be sure to use a 9 x 9 pan to avoid the dripping situation one of the posters had. Can’t wait to make it again…with some healthy substitutions and additions!!


Very sweet and decadent. I might change the topping next time since my son didn’t care for it. I love how moist this was without being soggy. My only change was to bake in a 9 inch round cake pan. Next time I’ll try to cut back on fat by using applesauce instead of butter and maybe fiddle with the carb count for my diet. I did have some and it was worth the cheat tho. ๐Ÿ™‚

Baked this for our church tea, only used 1/2 the sugar and used Oatmilk instead of Cream or Normal milk in the topping, It was a hit and loved by everyone, including the children.
