Oatmeal Cranberry Nut Breakfast Cake (Gluten Free)

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I’ve been experimenting more and more with different types of flour for baking purposes…some of this is spurred on by the gluten-free movement, some of it’s just because I want to branch out from regular wheat flour and try some of those cute little, albeit expensive for sure, packages of Bob’s Red Mill flours, like tapioca, rice, and others.  This recipe also includes my favorite~~oatmeal, and organic at that as in Country Choice Organics~~see, I won a contest they sponsored, so my prize was, you guessed it, oatmeal products!

  1. Ally, I grew up in a rural neighborhood (and era, ha!) where ladies would get together periodically for a “kafee klatsch” (not sure if I spelled that right) — basically it involved lots of fresh coffee, “coffee cake,” and a whole bunch of yakking and laughter. Your breakfast cake reminded me of that just now. Good times! Good cake!

    • Oh, Kim! I just love your memories! And, it’s the food that brings these out in us…I do remember these gatherings…we had similar ones in our town…those were the days where as a kid you just went out, walked down the street, knocked on a neighbor’s door, or just opened it!, and joined whomever was there! Yes, great times…you are so good to me…thanks for visiting, angel…xox
