This oatmeal cake is a recipe with a big personality. Everyone loves it, and with good reason. It has a fine texture and wonderful taste.
You can also turn this into cupcakes, which I’ve become more fond of over the years. They’re so handy to have on hand, they’re easy to eat and you can freeze them, thawing only as many as you need at a time. Cake, to the contrary, requires slicing a portion, and you almost have to be seated to eat a slice of cake as it calls for a plate and a fork.
If you hesitate to bake because it seems daunting to you, just give this recipe a try. I predict you too will become a Lazy Daisy addict. This recipe comes from a small loose-leaf cookbook called “Maren’s Pine Tavern Menus and Recipes” from Bend, Ore.
