95 Steamed Oatmeal and Walnut Cake

If you have diabetes, don’t add sugar in this recipe. When you go to eat this dessert, sprinkle a little Stevia extract on top, that way it will be sweet, but will not contain any sugar. You can find Stevia extract at organic grocery stores. I invented this oatmeal and walnut cake recipe to fit with my mother’s circumstances (she has diabetes) and with my own preferences. It is also fine to add some raisins or chopped up dates over the top of the cake.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/3 cups of steel cut oats
  • 1 1/3 cups of walnut meal (this is a flour substitute sold at organic grocery stores)
  • 1 1/2 cups of walnuts, finely chopped
  • 2 tsps of milled flax seed
  • A pinch of brown sugar
  • A dash of water
  • 2 small sheets of aluminum foil

DIRECTIONS

Step 1
Chop the walnuts.
Step 2
Put the steel cut oats, walnut flour, milled flax seed, and a little bit of brown sugar in a large mixing bowl. Add a little bit of water at a time and mix thoroughly until you have sticky dough. But be careful not to add too much water. You want everything to just stick together without crumbling. Then incorporate 1 cup of chopped walnuts.
Step 3
Coat one side of a small sheet of aluminum foil with oil. Use the aluminum foil to line the inside of a small rice bowl, leaving the oily side facing up. Press the aluminum foil down until it conforms to the shape of the bowl. Repeat the process with another piece of aluminum foil and rice bowl. Then split the dough between the two bowls. When the dough is in the bowl, press down with your fingers to pack the dough all the way into the bottom of the bowl and set aside.
Step 4
Bring water to a boil in the bottom compartment of a steamer. Put the dough-filled bowls on a higher layer of the steamer. Put the lid on the steamer and steam for about 10-15 minutes until the dough is completely cooked. Then remove the bowls from the steamer. Allow the bowls to cool to room temperature. Next remove the tin foil from the bowl, and with your hand on the outside of the aluminum foil, use your fingers to shape the cake into a hemisphere. When you’re reading to serve the steamed cakes, place them cake-side down on a serving dish and remove the aluminum foil. If you are preparing the steamed cakes ahead of time and won’t be serving them until the next day, reheat the cakes in the microwave or a toaster oven.
Step 5
When you’re ready to serve the cakes, sprinkle the other 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts over the top. Those who do not have diabetes can, in a small saucepan over medium heat, cook the other half cup of chopped walnuts with some brown sugar and water until the sugar water starts to bubble and thicken. Then remove the sweetened walnuts from the heat and pour over the steamed cake.
