Reviews forChocolate Oat Snack Cake
"This cake is very moist and has great flavor, which surprised me, since it uses so little cocoa. I loved it, and so did everyone at church. They ate almost all of it."
"Great recipe! easy, tasty, and uses on-hand ingredients! Fabulous!"

"A moist, dense cake. We liked it. I'm going to try different nuts next time. My daughter wants me to try toasting marshmallows on top next time -- kind of a rocky road thing ? ? ?"
