One of my family's favorite cakes is none other than oatmeal cake. The name may leave something to be desired, but trust me, it's so delicious! My father's mother would make it often and so my mother copied the recipe from my grandmother's cookbook. Not sure what cookbook, but either way, here it is.
Just a few things to note, the recipe calls for oleo. I don't have an exact explanation for what that means, but I can tell you all I did was use a stick of butter where it called for it. Also, the recipe requires chopped nuts. I only used pecans.
It's seriously so good!
