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.

I made this & took it to a class. Everyone loved it. I used regular oats also. worked great. Topped with a cream cheese frosting and sprinkled walnuts over top. Highly recommend..

Really good cake! Took no time at all to put together & get into the oven. I used 2/3 cup of mixed dried fruit bits for the raisins, otherwise followed the recipe exactly. The cake came out very moist, and I topped it with some leftover cream cheese frosting. Yummy! Thanks for posting! -M
