I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Coconut Oat Cake

Even though it's a cake it could definitely be eaten for breakfast.  Because of the oats it's a hardy cake not light and fluffy. You could even do muffins with this recipe.

1 cup oats
2 tbsps cream of wheat
2 tbsps chia seeds
1  1/4 cups boiling water
1/2 cup butter or marg
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1  1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg

Soak the oats, cream of wheat and chia in boiling water and set aside.

Beat butter and sugar together, then add the vanilla and eggs. Stir in the oat mixture and combine well. 

Mix the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg together, then add to the wet mixture in 3 additions.

Pour into a greased 9 X 9" baking pan and bake at 350 F for 40-50 minutes.

For the topping mix together:

1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 tbsps cream (I used 10%)
3/4 cup coconut

and spread over the cake while still warm.
