This recipes makes a good and moist spiced oatmeal cake with a coconut topping that is browned under the grill.
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 USA and Canada)
Next time maybe double the topping. - 10 Feb 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and 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 USA and Canada)
