Oatmeal Cream Pie Cake



Oatmeal Cream Pie Cake
I mentioned recently that I came up with an oatmeal cream pie cake recipe that my family adores so I wanted to share the recipe. One, so I don't forget it and two, in case anyone else out there would like to give it a go and become a dessert heroine to anyone who happens to have a fondness for a similar factory made delight. Now I'm not claimin' to have the keys to the oatmeal cream pie kingdom with this recipe. No, there are many others out there so individual tastes may vary. Try 'em all!!! I probably will eventually :) 

Here we go...

Oatmeal Cream Pie Cake

For the cake:

2 1/4 cups AP flour
2 cups ground (in my blender) old fashioned oatmeal (or instant oats can be used)
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup softened butter (let sit at room temp 'til softened)
2 cups brown sugar
4 large eggs
1 tbsp pure vanilla extract

For the cream frosting:
1 1/2 sticks room temperature butter
2 2/3 cups powdered sugar (confectioners)
1/4 cup whipping cream
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
a couple of dashes of sea salt

Now, let the fun begin! Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Spray a 13"x9" baking pan with a baking spray or grease and flour the pan.

Combine first four dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Set aside and in a large bowl, cream the softened butter with electric mixer until smooth. Add brown sugar and mix until well combined. Add in eggs and vanilla, blending until well incorporated. Scrape down sides of bowl occasionally to be sure no ingredients are being left out )': 
Add dry ingredients to the butter/sugar mixture and combine well.

Spread the oatmeal dough mixture into your sprayed/greased/floured baking pan and pop that baby into the preheated oven for approximately 25 minutes (or until you can insert a toothpick about an inch from the edge of the pan and it comes out clean). Let cool completely while you make the creamy, dreamy frosting...

Frosting directions:
with your electric mixer, beat the butter until smooth then add the powdered sugar, combining until well incorporated. Add remaining 3 ingredients and blend until well combined. Frost the cake when completely cooled and enjoy!

If you make this, or have any questions, let me know! I love hearing from you!
