This is a great cake - love the flavors and truly is very easy. We only did a pumpkin custard for Thanksgiving and had this cake to go with it. Made a nice alternative...thanks for posting!

Yum! Was having a chocolate craving I couldn't stifle. I usually go with something really rich and calorie laden like fudge or brownies,but decided to try to be good. Your recipe has oatmeal, so it's healthy...right? Anyway, it was a delicious, moist cake that was thoroughly enjoyed.
