This is an excellent winter cake - but this one is for my ma - in the states!
Corey's Oatmeal Cake:
3c boiling water
combine and set aside
2c sugar (I use 1 1/2 raw)
2c br sugar (I use Coconut Palm Sugar)
cream and set aside
combine and add to sugar mix
3c plain flour
mix all ingredients together well and pour into a 12" greased round springform tin.
Bake 180C or 350F for 40-50 minutes - test centre.
Meanwhile - topping:
2c Nuts (walnuts/pecans etc)
2c br sugar
bring to boil 2 minutes. Pour over a cooked cake and brown in oven till bubbly.
I won't bother putting the nutritional information here - except that it will all go directly to your thighs - no exceptions - no amount of running can burn a slice of this one off, so be sure when you make it you are sharing the majority of it!
