Banana Oatmeal Cake

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by spatchcock

This is a rather unusually-flavored, but very good, cake. I think it would work well for bridal or baby showers--a good change from plain yellow or chocolate cake. The batter in this may seem runny, but that's how it's supposed to be before you put it in the oven!

Very good. Nice and moist cake. I was afraid that I had done something wrong as it was pretty runny, but it turned out just perfect. I topped it with banana frosting-Yummy. I didn't add the nuts and I used canola oil instead of veg.
