A GOOOOD CAKE and A HAPPY BIRTHDAY






OATMEAL CAKE...

doesn't that sound sooo good for a special treat at
BREAKFAST....?? !!!

and we all know how GOOD FOR YA
oatmeal is.....right?? 


My whole house smelled sooo good...
and this is how it came out of the oven....

all golden and sweet and steamy and making me cut it before it had time to cool...




OATMEAL AND WHIMSY told me to cover this luscious cake with
POWDERED SUGAR.....



but.....but....

I dearly LUV butter on a HOT cake....


...so moist and full of flavor....AND full of PECANS..

if you make this, be SURE to add at least 1 full cup of pecans...
sooo good.

Now, those that know me, might remember that even if the original recipe doesn't call for VANILLA,
I ALways add it...







You have GOT to try this one...

for the delicious recipe...

Now, she's gonna tell YOU to put powdered sugar on it , just like she told me....
















OOO.....all ...RIGHT  !!


NEVER....EVER let it be said that bj doesn't do what she's told  !!!

It is a delicious and easy, quick breakfast cake that I will make again and again..

BJ...I've got to make this
Oatmeal Cake for my Dad. He'll be 92 next week! He loves his oatmeal each day, and this surely would be a
nice treat and a different way for him to enjoy it.
You're truly blessed with beautiful GrDtrs. I've got a 16 yr old 'handsome' GrSon...and if we lived closer, I'd play 'matchmaker' !! lol

You have the most beautiful grands! I would have picked the two dark haired girls as twins! The cake sounds so good, of course anything with pecans has to be good. Butter? I've never, but boy I will want to now! Hope all is well in your world. Time seems to slip by me and I am always behind in my blog reading!

NanaDiana said...

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful girls, bj. And that oatmeal cake looks WAY too good. I would probably eat the whole thing if I made it. But...I think I will make it for the family- xo Diana

Your Grands are so beautiful bj. I can see why you are so proud of all of them. Happy birthday to the twins.

I love oatmeal, so I'll definitely give this a try. Oatmeal cookies, oatmeal muffins, oatmeal bread, oatmeal scones....and now oatmeal cake for breakfast. Yummy!
Those granddaughters of yours are really very sweet!

Debbie said...

Let's get to the important stuff. Yes. They are beautiful.

As for the oatmeal cake, well, to quote a blog friend of mine: O Honey!!

Beverly said...

Honestly, BJ. You have me drooling again. That sounds delicious.

Your girls are beauties.

Pary Moppins said...

We LOVE cake for breakfast! :) And I'm with you, why have powdered sugar when you could have butter? :) Pinning the recipe. Thanks for sharing.

Patty Patterson said...

That looks delicious - and I think it would make good muffins, too. Plus with muffins you could eat a couple and put the rest in the freezer for later.
And the girls look lovely! Wish them a Happy Birthday for me and all of you blogger friends. :-)

Linda said...

Yum! Yum!!! Cake for breakfast! Why not??? Hope you have a marvelous day!!!
