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!
