That's an unusual one, Ilene. Does it rise much? I mean is it really like a cake or more like a bar cookie recipe? Sounds really good.

RE: RECIPE: Oatmeal cake

This is a very good cake. My mom used to make it. It is so moist and rich...awesome. My recipe is so close to yours it's probably silly to post it but I will so you can see. It's funny, just the other day I considered making this and decided to wait until Fall:
