I love using oatmeal in many breads and muffins to add a little texture. It is much cheaper then nuts and gives you a little something extra. This is an old recipe that creates a dense, moist cake. It will not be light and fluffy. It can be topped with either of the toppings listed. Play with more spices if you like or add some chopped apples.
