A crunchy oat topping complements tender pieces of chocolate cake. No frosting means it travels well.

Ingredients

Cake

1/2
box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ German chocolate cake mix (about 1 2/3 cups)
1/2
cup water
1/4
cup vegetable oil
2
eggs

Oatmeal Topping

1/2
cup packed brown sugar
1/3
cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
1/3
cup quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats
1/4
cup butter or margarine, softened
3/4
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4
teaspoon ground nutmeg

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Spray bottom only of 8- or 9-inch square pan with baking spray with flour.
  • 2 In large bowl, beat cake ingredients with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour batter into pan.
  • 3 In medium bowl, stir topping ingredients until crumbly, using hands if necessary. Sprinkle evenly over batter in pan.

Expert Tips

If you plan to tote this cake to a picnic, bake it in a disposable foil pan. Then you don't have to carry home the dirty pan.

For an oatmeal-chocolate chip topping, cool cake 10 minutes; sprinkle with 1/3 cup miniature chocolate chips.
