I found this recipe years ago from where, I don't recall. It's a fav. of my whole family.A wonderful, easy cake. Cut into squares.No need for icing on this one. It's so moist and dark and "delish"..and good for you....

This really is a good, moist cake. You would never know there was oatmeal in it if you hadn't read the recipe. Even through it is a very rich, moist cake, my family opted for double fudge frosting. :) Thanks for sharing!
