A very unique cake that is easy to make but very impressive and oh-so delicious. A simple cake made with oats and warm spices is baked, then topped with a mix of brown sugar and coconut, then grilled till bubbly and caramelised. Enjoy warm or room temperature.
Instead of one cake tin, you can use two 23cm round tins, or three 20cm round tins. Adjust baking time as needed.
This is a GREAT recipe. One of my professors made it for a meeting, and I insisted she give me the recipe. I just made a lower-fat version last night, I reduced the butter in the cake to 2 Tbsp and added 1/3 cup of applesauce, and reduced the butter in the topping to 2 Tbsp and used 1/3 cup of skim milk instead of the cream. Comes out almost as perfect as the original cake, and less guilt! :-) - 19 Mar 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Next time maybe double the topping. - 10 Feb 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is the same receipe as the Kentucky Oatmeal Soice Cake which is a specialty at Atlanta's famed Horseradish Grill. The cake is more spectacular served with the restaurant's homemade caramel ice cream. At home serve it with Dulce con leche (vanilla ice cream with caramel swirls) available at your grocer. YUM! - 29 Aug 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
