This is the oatmeal cake that my Grandmother and Mother used to make. Both of them have passed away and somehow their recipe was lost. . .until I found it again here in Recipezaar. It is sooo good.. . . . thanks a million. . it brings back a lot of memories

The flavor is excellent. However, the consistency is more like a steamed pudding than a cake, i.e., didn't rise much and too moist for my taste. I will try reducing the applesauce to 1/2 cup, and adding a teaspoon of baking powder. Also, the frosting/topping was too dry, so I added a tablespoon of canned milk.
