Mom's Oatmeal Cake

 So it was a very busy day here. We had to not only recover from a fun filled weekend, but we also did lots and lots of school.
 Add to that school work and a fun nature themed project and well, you have the makings for a crazy day.
 Last Friday Indiana did make an oatmeal cake though, and it was delicious!
 It's a simple cake that uses ingredients you most likely have in the pantry.
 It's always a big hit around here for dessert...and for breakfast!
 I once heard my mother say it was okay to eat leftover oatmeal cake for breakfast because it had oatmeal in it. Works for me....
 Here's a great cake recipe to start your week off! Enjoy!
