Oatmeal cake

I really like this recipe because it uses leftover oatmeal from breakfast. In my family growing up, we always had oatmeal leftover. The funny thing is that Brian and I usually have oatmeal leftover, too, even though I only make two servings. Over the course of a week or two, I've usually accrued enough to make this recipe:

Oatmeal Cake

Scant 2 c. of leftover oatmeal
1/4 c. butter
2 c. sugar or honey
2 eggs beaten
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. nutmeg
1/2 t. cloves
1 t. soda
1 t. vanilla
1 1/3 c. flour

Mix all ingredients together. Bake 40-50 minutes at 350 degrees.

I have a butter-based frosting on these here, but you could do cream cheese, caramel or coconut frosting, too.
