Chocolate Oat Cake Recipe

Publisher Photo
My mother gave me the recipe for this moist, fudgy cake. I like to make it because it's quick and doesn't need frosting, and it's also a family favorite. I am a cook at an elementary school and also help husband Denny on our farm. We and our three sons are active in 4-H.
