    Thanks so much for posting this. Sounds like the one my Mom used to make. She will be 69 on Wensday and am going to make this for her Birthday. I asked her today how old she is going to be and she said 15. She has Dementia so cant ask her how to make it. I know she probally has the receipe but is probally in storage. I am going to make this one for her hope she remembers it.

    The picture looks great! Now I need an event to make it for so I don't end up eating the whole thing myself.

    I never had oatmeal in cake before, muffins but not cake. I love the idea of the broiled icing/topping. I'm dying to see how it would look.
