Jolayne's Story

This is one of my favorite cakes from when I was little. In fact, I always asked for this cake for my birthday because I loved it so much. It is simple, but delicious. I have tried other oatmeal cakes, but none measure up to my Mom's. I hope you enjoy it.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Oh, wow! This brings back sweet memories of my favorite childhood cake. Mom used to have to hide her oatmeal cakes from me... I loved them so much! Sweet, nutty and moist, this is a wonderful recipe full of delicious nostalgia.
