Oatmeal Cake: a Revelation Weekend Favorite

Last weekend six fabulous women joined me for 24 hours of sharing, laughter, prayer, and GOOD FOOD. This is our second “Revelation Weekend Retreat” together. We named it that because God uses our time together to reveal His love for us in special ways. Our theme was praying for our husbands and our marriages.

I’m so grateful to have these women in my life. Women I can trust to intercede for me. Women who hear from God. Women who are willing to be real with each other.



We took shifts providing food. GOOD FOOD! The recipe I just HAD to have and share with you is the Oatmeal Cake.  Really! It sounds (wink)  healthy and it’s super yummy! Seriously – I could not stay away from the cake very long!

Oatmeal Cake

1 c butter
2 tsp salt
1 c brown sugar
1 c granulated sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1/4 c flour
4 eggs
2 tsp cinnamon
5 cups regular oatmeal (not quick cook)
2 c buttermilk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix butter and sugars until creamed. Add the eggs, oats, baking powder, flour, spices and salt. Add buttermilk and mix well well.

Pour into a greased 9×13 pan and bake for 30 – 40 minutes. Use the toothpick test to make sure it’s done.

Fabulous Options: Serve in a bowl with any combination of fresh fruit, half & half, nuts, brown sugar, raisins, and toasted pecans.

I know you will enjoy eating and serving the Oatmeal Cake. And I really hope you make time to retreat with people you trust and who call you up to another level of trusting Jesus’ power and love for you.

I am blessed to have another group of loyal and fabulous friends in Louisiana better known as my YaYa’s. We have been together for at least 13 years and have survived too many deaths, one major hurricane, one round of breast cancer, chemo and radiation. We’ve celebrated one new marriage, a 10k completed, and watching one amazing boy grow up.

I am rich with so many wonderful friends. Stay tuned for future posts about how they enrich my lives as well. I am truly blessed.

God invites us to ask Him, but His enemy works diligently to keep that from happening. I hope to offer you encouragement to believe God is ready to pour more into your life than you’ve ever imaged.
