    Ann Arber's Note:

    This cake recipe was given to me in 1967 when I was a brand new bride by a neighbor, Ethelda Wagner. What a dear woman she was. And her cake is fantastic!

      A very good cake, and my family loves oatmeal, so this is exactly what we were looking for. I cut the sugar by about 1/3 of a cup, based on the reviews, and we didn't miss it at all. It all disappeared within hours!

      This cake is truly fantastic! I was given this recipe in 1967 as well but there is 1 ingredient that is different we also add to the topping coconut 1/2 cup mixed into the topping before broiling it is great! You can also add pecans as well to the topping.

      I know this recipe hardly needs another positive review, but I'm supplying it anyway. I just had a piece of this cake and it is wonderful! It is moist and has just the right sweetness, and the icing is delicious. I followed the recipe exactly as written, except I added a few tablespoons additional water to the oatmeal as it seamed it had dried out some while I was preparing everything else for the cake. I baked it for a total of 38 minutes before the toothpick came out clean, but a bit sticky. For the icing, I melted the butter and brown sugar and cream over low heat in a small saucepan, then took it off the heat and added the vanilla before pouring it over the cake. Under my broiler, the icing was done in two and a half minutes. This recipe most definitely goes into my forever tried and true recipe collection and will be made again and again for years to come.
