Home Dessert Baking Oatmeal Cake with Macapuno Walnut Topping

Oatmeal Cake with Macapuno Walnut Topping

I’m over the moon with this picture, I have never taken a photo of any food that looks this great, I kept asking myself, did I really take this picture?

I am really glad that this time a picture can affirm to what I have to say about this surprisingly wonderful cake. I stumbled upon it on For the Love of Cooking. Pam, the owner of that blog is a great photographer, her photos are gorgeous. I got curious with this recipe; I have never tried making or even tasted oatmeal cake, I have baked using oatmeal in cookies and even substitute a potion of the flour with oats in some recipes, but never this way.

But that’s not the only reason why , she (Pam) also mentioned that it’s really quick and easy…now that’s music to my ears, I read the recipe over once, twice, it seemed really easy, so I copied it and to test it, I decided to make it at 4-ish in the morning, while preparing my daughter’s breakfast and packed lunch, this will be her recess-time treat.

To make the story short, this oatmeal cake rocks! It’s officially included in my recipe collection, now. Today. 24th day of July.

I did some substitutions in the frosting; in the original recipe, it did not say what type of coconut to use but in the picture, it looks like shredded coconuts, I didn’t have those and I don’t think dessicated would be a suitable replacement, so I used sweetened Macapuno (coconut sport – a variety of palm tree not unlike coconut but it’s meat is really, really tender) and used walnuts in place of pecans.
