Recently, a friendship blossom between a blog reader and myself. As home maker's social circle is rather small, finding new friends are always difficult since now I don’t hang out in my kids’ schools anymore.
At my low point, this blog reader actually wrote to me, encouraging and offers a listening ear. I am so touched by this gesture. Imagine a stranger offering this for me!
Soon I found myself chatting with her whenever we see each other online. Getting to know her better and I found out that she is also a vivid baker and cook. She does not own a blog and she is very humble with her knowledge.
So this recipe is her tested and liked and I couldn't wait to try it as well.
I ate oat since I was young. Mom very often either make it sweet or savoury as our breakfast meals. Especially when we are ill, oats will be one of our oil free meal. Unfortunately, I didn’t introduce oats to my kids when they were young (totally my fault), my kids grown up not liking having oats as their breakfast meals.
So I incorporate them into cookies and they will eat it up eagerly. Thus when I found out that I can also incorporate it into cakes, I was really delighted as by now all of you know the goodness of oats in our diet.
Besides a blunder thinking rolled oats as quick cooking oats, this cake turned out lovely (Thanks to my very efficient helper for once again, messed up all my storage labelling). Using good quality butter also added the awesome taste to butter cakes.
Shall we pair it with Earl Grey tea as our afternoon tea time later?
