Growing up, my mom used to make this and we would all go crazy over it. This cake is full of chocolate flavor, moist, and soooooo yummy. It is so good that my brother used to request it for his birthday cake every year over any other cake. Try it, you’ll love it!!!

    Quick oats, I am going to go update recipe now, 🙂
    Since you need to let the oats sit for 10 minutes, it needs to be the quick kind rather than old fashioned 😉
