Booger's Bangin' Oatmeal Cake

"I make this gooey unbelievable cake several times a month. My son-in-law, who I lovingly call "Booger" says it's " bangin' " ! I have had people ask me to make a whole cake just for them after they have tried a piece! Even the batter is delicious!!"

  1. Deliciously easy, no mixer required. I added an apple to the 1/2 recipe and it was tasty, I would make it again with some additional cinnamon as Feej said. The caramelized top with nuts is really nice.
  2. Update: I made this again & added 1 teaspoon cinnamon & 2 chopped apples. It was a big hit. ***We took this over to some friends house and all enjoyed it very much. I really like the addition of the oatmeal. Very nice. Very easy. I love that you can frost it right out of the oven. Thank you very much for sharing this lovely recipe.
  3. I reduced the sugar to 1 1/3 cups and added some ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg. It has great moist texture and it's beautiful too! I skipped the topping, due to a dislike of coconut, and used a simple buttercream frosting instead.
  4. Super recipe! So easy to make, my 15 yr old son who is a picky eater loved this! The only thing I changed is to add 2 mashed bananas to the mix, only because they needed to be used. They really made a nice addition to the cake. I took some to my co worker, she loved it so much she took it to their church dinner, and it got rave reviews again. This is definitely a winner recipe for a pot luck or family dinner. Thanks for sharing!
  5. This is a great recipe, keeps well, not overly sweet...will make again..


I am the proud mother of 3..... 2 girls and a boy. This is a picture of myself and my oldest daughter, who is now a married woman, and is a Recipe Zaar member, known as "Sarah in New York"!! I have been married for 30 years to a wonderful Christian man who is crazy about me, and calls me "Bean". Everyone wonders how he doesn't weigh 300 pounds, the way our family eats! I was raised by a mom that was a chef from West Virginia, and I learned to love to cook....and to appreciate how to use a good glassful of reserved bacon fat ") My family has been in ministry to troubled teenagers in upstate New York for 28 years. Both my daughters are married now, and we all work in the same ministry, one teaching music like myself, and the other, a teacher in the high school. My girls and I also travel and sing with teens from our ministry throughout the year in churches, schools, and detention centers all over the USA and Canada. My son was in Nigeria for a year, teaching English in a Christian school, and is now back in the U.S. attending college in upstate N.Y. He is an accomplished guitarist and is one of the worship leaders in his church. I love this website that my daughter, "Sarah in New York" introduced me to! :) I am a blessed Mommy Bean :) Please check out the link to the home for troubled teens where we work! <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><img src="">
