In my continuing search for an oatmeal cake "better than grandma made" I found this one. Rather than messing with broiling the topping, just combine the topping ingredients and spoon it randomly on top of the uncooked cake batter. Bake at 325 for 40-50 minutes. Delicious and no chance of broiling accidents and topping cleanup messes.

i accidently overbaked these because i left my oven at 400 but knew i had to get them out as soon as i smelled the flavor. i made exactly 22 cupcakes with these (pour water over the 2 empty slots) and even though i overbaked them, they were fantastically moist. i will be making again! this time i'll remember to bake them at 350 for 25-30 mins

I've tried dozens of oatmeal cake and bar recipes, trying to duplicate the one I loved as a kid. I'm done, this is it! I have printed a copy of the recipe to keep in my purse because so many people ask for it.

I used regular milk instead of evaporated but otherwise made the recipe as written. I was a bit worried that the batter was too thick to 'pour' into the pan but it was better once the softened oats were added. This is Delicious... both warm with ice cream or cold!

Excellent!!! Great with coffee and vanilla ice cream. The topping is soooooooo good. Impressed the in-laws with this. Everyone liked this cake.

My whole family liked this cake. The flavor reminds me of fall. The Brulee topping added the perfect sweet, nutty crunch. I always follow the recipe AS WRITTEN the first time I make it so I can accurately rate the recipe. I will definitely make again with a slight cut back in white sugar. I'd like to play around with whole wheat flour, apples, raisins & spices.

Don't change a thing!! Being from the south, I had never even heard of this cake before! A friend from the midwest requested it, and it was a huge hit!! Definitely suggest sticking with the broiling - it caramelized everything perfectly! Thanks for the recipe. Made this again! The recipe is still the best!! Was thinking about trying it as a breakfast cake next time. Maybe add a little more oatmeal and a little less brown sugar/butter to the topping. Would make a good coffee cake??
