Butterscotch Picnic Cake
This recipe comes from the kitchen of our longtime Gooseberry Patch family member, Cindy Neel, and you can find it in our cookbook, Cook It Quick. This cake is picnic-perfect because there's no frosting, but plenty of rich flavor!
1/2 c. butter
1 c. brown sugar, packed
3 eggs, beaten
1 t. vanilla extract
2 c. all-purpose flour
1 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
1-1/2 c buttermilk
1 c. quick-cooking oats, uncooked
6-oz. pkg butterscotch chips
1/3 c. chopped walnuts
Beat together butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Blend in eggs and vanilla; mix well. Whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Add flour mixture to butter mixture alternately with buttermilk, mixing well after each addition. Stir in oats. Spread in a greased 13" x 9" baking pan. Combine butterscotch chips and nuts; sprinkle over top. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes. Cool; cut into squares. Serves 15 to 18.
