I was hesitant to try this cake at first. I have the pickiest eaters and I was not sure if they will love this oatmeal cake. I am even surprised that they dig this and ask for it again and again. To make this cake, you only need a few simple ingredients. To achieve that impressive frosting, broil this cake for a few seconds until the frosting is bubbly.

Nothing beats the classic, and this oatmeal cake is an old recipe from my mom’s cookbook. This recipe has been around for ages, and people still love it after many years. This cake is a fantastic cake to bring to functions, potlucks, and serve on holidays. A wonderful recipe and surely a keeper!
