O'Boy question...

So I'm looking at the recipe for O'Boy Oatmeal Cake... and pardon my ignorance, but what is a nutmeat???

Chris is allergic to many nuts (if that has anything to do with this). Would pecans work as a substitute?

Liz, since I didn't have the ingredients for the frosting, I just served the cake with just whipped cream...and it was oh-so-delicious.

Next time, though, I really REALLY want to try the frosting...it looks delish.

Thanks again for posting this, Amelia!

Liz - if you're going to try to poison me, don't make a public announcement - you go to jail longer if you do. Also, you aren't allowed to kill me around our anniversary, I should get some sort of reprieve until after the celebrations are over.

Also, if I do die (or you murder me), bury me with a cell phone, so if I happen to wake up I can call for help. And it better be a phone that gets good reception, I don't think the one I have now could find a signal through 6 feet of dirt.

I decided "nutmeats" was meant to describe the non-shell part of any nut.

I used almonds, but will make the glaze sans nuts next time. Scott and I like it better that way.

I actually have never used nuts in this, but I think pecans would taste really good in it.

I also have never used nuts. The original recipe called for chopped walnuts I believe, but we either never had them or didn't like them. (Cankers, you know.)

oh-- that would explain why Scott was surprised about the nuts. I guess you all never used them. That makes more sense.
