I absolutely loved this recipe! A tasty treat, but not so overwhelmingly sweet that you can’t have a second slice. It hits the mark that all deserts should aspire too: it goes perfectly with a piping hot mug of tea! Just mix some cooked oatmeal with your basic cake ingredients, and top it off with a wonderful icing to give that finishing touch with a delightful crunch. We substituted almonds for mixed nuts in the icing, and I’d be willing to bet that just about any nuts would work well.

So glad you two liked this cake. It was definitely a favorite of mine too. Tea wasn’t yet in my wheelhouse in those days but would be today. That addition would be awesome. Love that you took part in this fun project.
Chocolate and coffee – my choice of ingredients.
Looks great and yeah, mom would definitely approve of your “tea test.” 🙂 Seeing the picture reminds me of how much fun we had spending some time with you and Adrianna at Josh’s wedding. See you in a few weeks!
