Oatmeal Crumb Cake

  This cake is the answer to my Son-In-Law's Birthday Cake Request. I always make whatever they wish for their birthdays & this year he asked for a Yellow Cake with Oatmeal Crumbs. This is what he will be digging into tomorrow ! I wish we could try this big beautiful cake right now !
We had this cake last night for Kevin in honor of his birthday. WOW! Great texture with 2 inches of crispy crumb topping for this cakes crowning glory ! The cake was moist, flavorful & gorgeous too! 

4 & 1/2 Cups Flour
3 Cup Sugar    
1 Tsp Salt
3/4 Cup Shortening
2 Tsp. Baking Powder
Cut the above together to make crumbs reserve 1 Cup to make your topping. To the remaining crumbs add
3 beaten eggs         
2 Cups Buttermilk
2 Tsp Vanilla 
1 Tsp Baking Soda dissolved in the buttermilk. Make sure your bowl for the buttermilk & soda is deep because it will foam up somewhat when you stir the baking soda into the buttermilk. Beat all of this together with a mixer until you have a nice smooth batter. Grease & flour a large bundt or angel food cake pan. pour the batter into the pan. Now take the reserved crumbs & cut in the following:
3/4 cup Flour
1/2 Cup Sugar
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
2 Tsp Cinnamon
2 Tbs Shortening
1 Cup Oatmeal.
Cut until all crumbs are mixed well. Sprinkle over the cake batter. Evenly spread it over the top. Dot top of crumbs with bits of butter using about 4 Tbs. all together. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Check with a toothpick to see if it comes out clean. If toothpick doesn't have wet crumbs & cake is springy to the touch remove from oven & let cool for about 1 & 1/2 hours. Run a knife along the outer edge & around the center hole. Invert onto a plate & then invert again so crumb top is on top. Serve warm or cold !
