OATMEAL CAKE RECIPE – Butter with a Side of Bread by Gordon Ramsay

OATMEAL CAKE RECIPE - Butter with a Side of Bread


Oatmeal Cake recipe that is moist, full of oats and easily topped with chocolate chips. This easy cake recipe is made with simple ingredients that yield such a delicious cake, you don’t even need frosting!

This Oatmeal Cake recipe has been in my family for years and is my absolute favorite cake recipe. Typically, Oatmeal Cake is topped with a coconut/brown sugar icing, but I don’t really care for coconut and always felt like the cake was better without it.

Years ago, I decided a little bit of chocolate would be delicious so I started sprinkling chocolate chips on top as soon as the cake comes out of the oven. You can spread the chocolate chips around once they are melted, but I prefer to leave them intact. They will melt at first and then re-harden a little bit, but they add just the right amount of chocolate flavor to the cake. The only thing that makes this cake better is eating it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

What kind of oats work best in oatmeal cake?

I usually use old-fashioned oats in this recipe, but you can definitely use quick oats if that is what you have on hand. I prefer the texture and flavor of old-fashioned oats, so make sure to try them out and see what you prefer.

How do you store oatmeal cake?

Oatmeal cake will stay fresh when kept at room temperature for about 3-4 days. This recipe is one that tastes better warm, so if you don’t devour the whole thing when it’s fresh out of the oven, make sure to warm up any leftover pieces in the microwave before serving.

How is syrup made?

There are many, many different kinds of syrup, and how they’re made depends on what kind of syrup you’re making. Typically, syrup is made from boiling sugar with butter and a liquid, then cooling it slowly. In this case the liquid is apple cider, which is what gives it that classic fall taste!

Does Homemade syrup expire?

Syrup has a long shelf life when refrigerated. Because it’s made with preserving ingredients like sugar and water, it stays fresh for up to 6 months when stored in the fridge.

Can you freeze apple syrup?

Syrup keeps best in the freezer. However, it won’t freeze solid. Just remember to store it in airtight jars or containers.

BEST BELGIAN WAFFLE RECIPE – Butter with a Side of Bread by Gordon Ramsay

Crispy Belgian Waffle recipe with 4 tips that make these the BEST waffles ever! Simple waffle recipe that everyone loves.

BEST Crispy Belgian Waffle recipe with 4 tips that make these the BEST waffles ever! Simple waffle recipe that everyone loves.

Can you even contain your excitement!? I mean- oh, the possibilities!

I saw an idea online for a waffle party, and thought it was the perfect idea for Jude’s 1st birthday.
I set out to find the perfect waffle recipe, but they all kept falling short.
We’re talking a dozen failed recipes.
Looked online. Looked through cookbooks. Tried it all! I adapted and adjusted, but for the life of me, couldn’t get the right balance! In my head, I wanted free-hotel-continental-breakfast waffles. Know which ones I mean? Well, a month later (just in time for the party), and after the 12th recipe, I’m here to share my secrets and the final version…

BEST Crispy Belgian Waffle recipe with 4 tips that make these the BEST waffles ever! Simple waffle recipe that everyone loves.How to make Crispy Belgian Waffles

Here are my tips for making the BEST belgian waffles:

1- Use a Belgian waffle maker, preferably one that flips (I bought this one.) I own several waffle irons and use different ones depending on how many people I’m feeding. This Belgian waffle maker cooks 2 at once!

2- Cornstarch! I replace about 25% – 40% of the called-for flour with cornstarch.

3- Regular milk only. Buttermilk made them creamy, but not crispy… which seemed counter-intuitive:)

4- Separating & beating the egg whites. I heard this over and over again, but it’s true. The whipped whites make a difference.

Simply the BEST Belgian Waffle recipe EVER. 4 Tips for PERFECT WAFFLES every time! Crispy Belgian waffles with great flavor & deep grooves, ready for butter & syrup! #waffles #recipe #breakfast #BelgianWaffles #waffle from BUTTER WITH A SIDE OF BREAD

*Since I was making these for a party, I needed 25 waffles. Taking 3 minutes per waffle to cook, I needed them to stay crisp while the others baked! This is kind of in impossible feat, or so I thought… The trick was to place the waffles in an oven set to 200, directly on the oven racks (not on plates or pans!). Each one was just right! I can’t believe it worked. It worked! I’ve made this recipe since the party, and the oven trick is the key- they always stay perfectly crisp.

^^ Ok, and now, my favorite way to eat waffles! My favorite restaurant growing up in Ohio had this on the menu, and my grandma would let me order it as my meal every time! (Grandmas are the best, yes!?) Warm waffles topped with ice cream and hot fudge. I mean, just the best. Making these at home for the first time was an out of body experience, let me tell you!
