Oatmeal Cake

IngredientsFor the Cake

  • 1 1/2 cups hot fat-free milk
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter , at room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

For the Streusel Topping

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Coat a 9×13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. 
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the hot milk and the oats; allow to soak while you prepare the remaining ingredients. 
  3. In another medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. 
  4. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, cream together the butter and both sugars. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Add half of the flour to the creamed butter mixture, followed by the soaked oats (including any liquid), then the remaining flour, mixing between additions. 
  5. Pour into the prepared baking dish and bake until set, 35-40 minutes. 
  6. For the topping, put the butter, brown sugar, and milk in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, while stirring. Once sugar is dissolved, remove from heat. Stir in the coconut and pecans. (Mixture will be thick.) Spread over the cake evenly. 
  7. Let stand for about 10 minutes. 
  8. Slice and serve!
