Please jump on this bandwagon.


Oatmeal Creme Pie Cake

Cake adapted from My Kitchen, My Love

1 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 tbsp. molasses
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 cups oats
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour two 6-inch round cake pans.
Cream together the butter and sugar. Add the eggs, molasses and vanilla, beating until well blended. Whisk together the dry ingredients, then slowly mix in flour mixture to butter/sugar mixture. Fold in the oats.
Divide the batter between pans. Bake in pre-heated oven for 18-20 minutes until the cakes are a deep golden and a toothpick in center comes out fairly clean.
Allow cakes to cool in pan for 10 minutes before inverting out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
For the marshmallow filling:
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
15 ounces marshmallow creme
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Beat all ingredients in the bowl of a stand mixer until smooth. Spread between the two cooled cake layers.

    I fully intend to jump all over that bandwagon. Looks awesome, though my absolute irrational fear of marshmallow creme may lead me to switch up the filling for Cream Cheese Icing.
