Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Mother used to make this cake quite often when I was growing up. I made it and took it to work a few years ago and everyone went wild over it, they had never eaten it before (I thought everyone had eaten oatmeal cake) This is an example of the generation that is younger than me and how we are losing the old recipes and why we should share them.
