  5. Bill Gibron posted his version of the recipe I was just questioning that –

    (This Chocolate Oatmeal Cake is to die for!

I think he made a typo.

    I have your recipe copied out, I had just made an oatmean cake but next time I’ll use yours and see how we like the chocolate version. Thanks

    • LOL it isn’t the eggs that are softened. There is a comma missing in there. It is the butter or margarine that is softened.

  6. This cake was absolutely amazing. Have made it twice already…

      So happy you are enjoying this cake, Bill. Thank you for being a part of the site and trying my recipes.

  7. Was delighted to see this cake. A best friend of mine, now deceased, always talked about an oatmeal cake made with cooked oatmeal. This sounds like it fills the bill. Can’t wait to try it. Second thing is wow it’s also chocolate. Thanks for the post.

  11. Gracious me! I LOVE oatmeal cake, but have never tried a chocolate version. If you say it’s wonderful, I know it must be. Thanks for sharing. Happy 2014 to you and yours!

    im wanna try this oatmeal cake

  13. Will rolled oatmeal do. Never buy quick oatmeal.

    • The Southern Lady says:

      I only make it with the quick cooking oatmeal.

    • Linda Yes you can use the regular rolled oats, just leave them in the hot water for 20 minutes. I use them all the time in a oatmeal cake, turns out great. But I will be trying this chocolate version.
