#26 Lazy Daisy Oatmeal Cake

#26 officially marks the halfway point in the book! Maybe that’s what my baby has been waiting for 😉 Still no labor contractions, Elseth Jr’s arrival date is still pending.

Last night our community group decided to just BBQ and hang out and I was hoping to miss the BBQ because of having a baby, or to join in with baby in arms. Neither of my wishes were granted. However I DID make a cake. Since my due date I have made scones, chocolate chip cookies, and a cake. I do love to bake, and what better to do with all the free time I thought I would spend taking care of the little guy than baking up some delicious goods? Nothing.

So as of today this baby boy is 5 days late. He was due on the first and today is June 6th – D-day. Some women refer to their delivery day as d-day, since today actually IS D-day, I think that is a good sign. Come on baby!!

Some coconut milk, butter, and oats getting cooked up with boiling water. It was like making runny oatmeal.

The “icing”, which was more of a chunky topping, consisted of coconut, pecans, oats, sugars, butter, and coconut milk. YUM.

This cake was DE-licious. It would’ve been perfect for a breakfast dish, was quick and easy to make, and just tasted wonderfully. Not exactly coffee cake consistency, more like a cross between that and bread pudding, eaten warm ideally, and we had whipped cream with it which made it oh so good. I’ll definitely be making this one again. 🙂
