Oatmeal Cake Recipe: Fall Favorites


A really good cake. It could even be labeled “hard to resist”.

Something about fall makes us want to cook. And not just anything, but warm, comforting foods. The foods that were too hot to cook in the summer. One of our family favorites is Oatmeal Cake. It’s incredibly moist, slightly sweet, and is kind of a unique to bring to a family gathering. And don’t skip the topping step. It’s like frosting, except for better. Trust us.

And without further ado, our favorite recipe for Oatmeal Cake.
