It’s the weekend and we go off the diet on weekends. Usually it’s something like we eat a potato or a slice of bread but this has been a rough week and with the extra oatmeal sitting there begging to be used, I made an oatmeal cake.
It’s one of those things that I knew fighting the urge was useless. It’s stronger than I am! Give me credit . . I made half the recipe and cooked it in a round pan, which totally screwed up the cutting and serving, but I couldn’t find my square cake pan. I’m sure it has something in it that’s in the freezer.
Anyway, this is the recipe I used. I made a couple of changes. I found sweetened condensed milk before I found evaporated milk so I used the sweetened condensed milk, because . . when you need 1/2 cup of milk, what are you going to do with the rest of the evaporated milk? With sweetened condensed milk . . you know what to do . . eat it!
I didn’t have sweetened coconut so I used the dried flakes I had. I left out the brown sugar since the sweetened condensed milk was already sweet.
