BAKED Sunday Mornings: Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cake
This week's choice for Baked Sunday Mornings, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting, used one of the strangest methods I have ever encountered. First, you essentially make oatmeal with boiling water and butter and then you fold it into a cake batter. It may be strange, but it works because this is definitely one of my favorite recipes that we have made so far. The cake had a nice chewy texture, the chocolate chips added a nice layer of flavor and the cream cheese frosting was divine. It might be a little intense for a regular morning breakfast, but it makes a nice morning treat or a yummy dessert.
Today is the day after Yom Kippur, a fast day in the Jewish calendar. It is a really busy time of year for me and not a great time to be baking but this was really easy to put together and made a good break fast last night. I will be making this again.
