Oatmeal Cinnamon Banana Cake

 

Oatmeal Cinnamon Banana Cake @createdbydiane

This is the perfect item to have all stacked up on the kitchen counter.

It’s irresistible, I know that for a fact because pieces were disappearing…coincidentally as soon as someone walked would walk by.

There goes 1…2…3…pieces,

I had to hurry and get a piece for myself.

I just love easy cakes like this. Perfect for those bananas sitting on the counter, and great when you need to bring something over to a friends house to have coffee.  Well I for one and waiting for the calm after the storm to die down. Or in English, things to settle down a bit now that the kids are out of school and my car may have a chance to sit in the garage and rest for a whole day. I’m envious of those who their kids ride the bus. My mom and I talk about how things have changed and she still can’t believe there aren’t busses to bring my kids to school and how it takes me 30 minutes to get each child from school each day and they get out at different times. Yep, it’s a good hour and a half plus per day I will gain back at the least now that summer is here. I think I’ll be making this to stop by to some visit with some friends this summer and sit, relax and catch up. Yep that is what I have planned. I just don’t think people stop by and sit and chat they way they used to everyone is so busy, busy, busy. I’m tired of busy! Busy is so over-rated!

    What a lovely little snack cake! Oatmeal makes cakes so moist and adds such a great texture.

    this is on my to try list!! I can relate to your school year dilemma….I have 5 kids…….1 in Elementary school, one in middle and 2 in high school…one just graduated this year :) The 2 in High school go to different schools (one is a special needs kiddo and luckily that one rides the bus!!) But every day…..pick up at the elm school and wait and hour rather than going home to save on gas. Then get that one and pcik the other one up….not to mention the sports practices, clubs, plays, and general kids stuff….i live in my car…..lol.

    Hello summer!!

    I’m completely out of oatmeal and thought about getting some today and though naaah I don’t need it right now. Now I wish I had some! This looks fantastic.

    I’m tired of busy, too! And I do actually remember when friends ‘visited’ each other. We’d drop by each others houses just to say hi. It was nice and it’s too bad that people don’t do that any more. Maybe we could all get together and bring back that custom!

    Want. NOW!!!!

    Diane-
    Do you use quick oats or regular cooking oats???

  10. 12

    This cake looks delightful, I’d love to have some of this with my coffee when I wake in the morning :)

    Hey! Just found this via pinterest and it looks AHmazing. A couple questions though – I’m in Africa so some ingredients are hard to come by. Would quick oats ruin the recipe? And could I use regular flour rather than cake flour?
    Would love to try this out today, bananas are about 6 cents each here so there are always plenty sitting on our counter!

      Yes you can substitute items in this recipe, however the texture will be different.(but I’m sure it will taste the same) Cake flour is lighter and has less protein than all purpose flour. Substitute 2 cups all purpose flour minus two tablespoons. That will most likely give you the best result. The oats can be substituted as well, it may not have the same chewiness.
      Happy Baking!
