Our family loves this cake. I double it for a 9x13 and omit the walnuts for the sake of one child. It benefits from a bit of salt and extra cinnamon. Cook a little longer if you are dealing with a gooey cake. A cream cheese frosting, whipped cream, or buttery sauce is the perfect finish.
this cake recipe seems off to me. i attempted to make it, followed all instructions, etc., and at the "batter" stage, i had a very watery, FOAMY mess. i'll give the benefit of the doubt and say that maybe there were some misprints in the recipe--the flour especially seems to be a starngely small amount. also, the recipe called for using a 9*9 pan, and with the amount of watery foam batter i had, it would have bubbled out of the pan. unfortunately, trying to make this cake into muffins only made it worse--the muffins boiled out of the pan and burned. also, i tried adding flour to thicken up the batter, and that obviously didn't help.
i think this recipe needs some adjusting, which is why i am only giving it one star.
This cake was gooey and did not have a good taste. I will not make this again.
This cake had a gummy texture and did not have a good flavor.
I have made this recipe for years and its really good. I pour the boiling water over the oats and sugars and then add the rest of the ingredients in normal cake fashion. It's light and fluffy and rich.
Great recipe! I added shredded carrots, cranberries, chopped granny smith apple and a little more applesauce. I baked it in a sheet cake pan and cut into squares, it didn't last a day!
