Johnny Cake

From the old Red Rose Flour cookbook, that Canadian classic.

1 cup cornmeal
½ cup milk
1 ¼ cups flour
2 ½ tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/3 cup butter
½ cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup milk.
Combine cornmeal and ½ cup milk. Set aside. Mix together flour, baking powder and salt. Cream butter and sugar. Add sifted dry ingredients alternately with the blended egg and milk. Turn into greased 8 inch square pan. Bake in preheated 350 oven for 40 to 45 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Cool 5 minutes than remove from pan.

I saw this recipe and knew you'd be the one to ask! Do you know anything about a Johnny Cake made with oatmeal instead of cornmeal? I wonder if I should experiment and just interchange them?
