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!

Made it per the directions. Tasted okay last night, but could not get anybody at work to eat them, even with Blue Bell ice cream....
Will not try again.
