Saucepan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cake with Cinnamon

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

I have been making saucepan cakes for years and years. You know the kind where you bring your water to a boil add the oats and butter, remove it from the heat until it has cooled before you continue. Not only is this cake delicious, but it is also easy to make.. And your family will love it, I promise!
