Then one day she baked a chocolate cake that was unlike any kind of cake that I had ever tasted in my short, box cake filled life. It was ooey, gooey and covered in chocolate chips... So many chocolate chips on top that this cake had no need for any type of frosting. It was like a mix between a chocolate cake with some elements of brownie sneaking through. It was amazing!!
She made all kinds of variations with it, sometimes she added roasted almonds. That was when I discovered that nuts really weren't all that gross as my former nut hating middle school self soon confessed.
She played around with added cherry pie filling and it was amazing. Soon, people started calling and requesting that she bring this specific Chocolate Oatmeal cake to all of their pot luck functions. Children in the neighborhood came over and requested this cake for their birthdays (Richard, you know you who I'm talking about!) Basically it became legendary. I started having strange thoughts like, "when did my Mom become the chocolate cake ROCK STAR?" "Why on earth is she constantly baking chocolate cakes for EVERYONE's Birthday's?" You know that snarky middle school mindset. It seemed like at least once a week she was baking one of these cakes. It wasn't until I matured and starting becoming more and more interested in the happenings in the kitchen that I soon learned this woman's amazing secret... This cake was SO EASY TO MAKE!
It takes mere minutes to whip-up, you don't even need a fancy Kitchen-Aid, and it's obviously a crowd pleaser. She then passed the recipe on to me and now I pass it on to you! Yes, YOU can become the chocolate cake ROCK STAR in your neighborhood as well! Here's how you make it...
Grab a friend and your favorite hot beverage and enjoy!
Like I said... There is NO NEED to frost this cake. The melted chocolate on top is enough. You can always dress it up with a craft like this...
But there's really no need for this no-fuss, scrumptious chocolate oatmeal cake that is going to make you a ROCK STAR. And hey... It has oatmeal in it. That means it qualifies as breakfast food as well!
