    Oatmeal Cake w/Peanut Butter Fudge Frosting

    I make this cake twice a year, on Father's Day and on a cold snowy winter day. It's the ultimate comfort dessert. It looks time consuming to make but it isn't. It is large enough for potluck but I don't make it to take to potlucks anymore. It's all everyone wants me to bring ever again. LOL The recipe was in the newspaper years ago.

    Oatmeal Cake with Peanut Butter Fudge Frosting

    Step 1
    1 C. oatmeal
    1 1/2 C. hot water

    Step 2
    1 C white sugar
    1 C brown sugar
    1 Stick butter
    2 Eggs
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 tsp vanilla extract

    Step 3
    1 1/2 C. Flour
    1 tsp. soda
    1 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp cinnamon

    FROSTING
    1 1/2 sticks butter
    2 C brown sugar
    4 T. water
    2 T vanilla extract (You MUST use 2 TABLESPOONS)
    1 1/3 C. Peanut butter

    Step 1: pour water over oatmeal and let sit for 5 minutes

    Step 2: Cream all ingredients together. Add step one
    .

    Step 3: Add all the step 3 ingredients to Step 2, mixing thoroughly. Pour into a 9 x 13 pan. Bake in a preheated 350 oven for 30-40 minutes depending on oven. Cake is done when knife inserted comes out clean.

    Frosting: Bring all ingredients, except peanut butter to a boil for 1-2 minutes stirring.
    Take off heat and add peanut butter and stir until smooth.
    Pour hot frosting over hot cake. Frosting will not be real thick, but will set up as the cake cools.
    Start the fudge during the last 5 minutes the cake is baking and pour over the cake the second it comes out.
    If you use a clear glass Pyrex to bake the cake, you can watch the fudge seep down the side.
    Got fabric?

    Is that all-purpose or self-rising flour? I get confused because so many recipes just say "flour". Yours looks delicious!

    If the recipe does not say self rising then don't use it! Plain all purpose flour is what you need for any recipe that says flour. Some will say all purpose but most older recipes do not.

    Ok, I have copied and plan to make it for potluck at church next Sunday. Here is my question. Does it matter if you use quick cook oatmeal or regular oatmeal? Will either do or do I need to get regular oatmeal? Thank you so much!

    What type of oats did you use? Seems like there are at least 4 or 5 at the market.

    Sounds yummy. I have been reading so much about coconut oil being so good for you that I have been substituting that for butter in my baking with good results. Also like to know if the old fashioned oats can be used or if you used minute oats.
