I think the measurement for the baking powder should have been 1 tsp instead of 1 Tablespoon. Everyone said the cake was good but I could taste the baking powder and did not enjoy the cake (but I'm critical of my cooking).

Yum...I was looking for a snack cake to have around and this is it!! The changes I made from the recipe was using 1/2 cup softened butter, 1 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar, added 1/8th tsp ginger to the spices and soaking the raisins in apple cider before adding to the batter. I also used 3 eggs instead of 4. It just got out of the oven and while it is awfully crumbly right now I haven't even waited for it to cool properly yet and I'm sure it will firm up slightly while cool. I also drizzled a thin glaze made from powdered sugar and apple cider on while still warm but in truth it is sweet enough without it.

made this today, used 3/4 cup brown sugar and 3/4 cup white sugar, didn't have raisins so i added 1/8 cup applesauce and 1/4 cup oats, and because i love spice, added a 1/2 teaspoon allspice and 1/4 teaspoon more nutmeg, and i took this cake to a class i go to, and i kid you not, it was gone. i was told by two of them that they don't even like nuts, but that it was perfect with it(i used coarsely chopped pecans and walnuts). it smelled and tasted wonderful, very moist, chewy, and i had cooked it in a bundt pan with no problem. so glad i found this recipe, a definate hit!

There isn't a thing about this recipe that I would change. Even thought a few of the proportions seemed unusual, I went ahead and trusted the recipe and I'm glad I did. The creator of this recipe definitely means to use 1 Tbl. baking powder and 3/4 tsp. cloves! Don't be afraid! The cake turned out really moist, flavorful and dense, as a good snack cake should be. This recipe is definitely a keeper!

This is a great recipe! I substituted dried cranberries for the raisins, and used 2 loaf pans instead of the tube pan.

This is the closest recipe I have found to an old favorite, named "Fine & Vital Oat Cake", that I found in a Sunset Magazine in the 1970's. Unfortunately that recipe burned with my house two years ago and nobody in my family had the recipe ... and I have spend 2 years on the web trying to find anything close to it. Packs well, goes camping well, is a great oat cake.
