Irish Oatmeal Cake


Irish Oatmeal Cake


  •  1/4 cup unsalted butter
  •  1/4 cup evaporated milk
  •  1 cup Dixie Crystals Light Brown Sugar
  •  1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  •  1/2 cup coconut
  •  1/2 cup walnuts or pecans

*Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease a 9 x 13-inch cake dish.
  2. Add oatmeal and butter to a medium bowl. Pour boiling water over top and cover with a kitchen towel or lid. Let sit for 20 minutes.
  3. Add sugar, brown sugar, and eggs to bowl.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, and cinnamon. Add dry ingredients to bowl with vanilla and mix to form batter.
  5. Pour batter into prepared baking dish. Bake for 35 minutes, until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  6. Make topping by combining butter, evaporated milk, brown sugar, and vanilla in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Boil for 2 minutes. Pour over cake while still hot, then sprinkle on coconut and pecans.
  7. You can eat and serve right away, but it's really best if you let cake cool and allow topping to soak into cake first.
