There are no rules for what is appropriate to serve for Sunday Dinner, it can be as fancy as you like or as frugal as you need! What makes Sunday Dinner special is who you get to dine with...

We have news! Proudly presenting our unique and delicious cookbook series, “Cooking by the Seat of my Pants!” from Our Sunday Cafe, available right here!

For this week's Sunday Dinner, I would like to suggest the following...

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. And your family will love it, I promise!

Easy saucepan cake, one pan, one cake, one delicious treat!

Add sugar and eggs to the oat mixture, combine well.

1 1/2 c flour
1/2 t salt
1 t baking soda
1 t baking powder
2 t cinnamon
Stir together in a large bowl, add to the oat mixture, beat by hand until mixture is smooth.

1 1/2 - 2 c chocolate chips - if you are not using mini chips, chop them up a bit, then they won't sink
1/2 t water
2 T flour
Toss the chips with the water to coat, sprinkle with the flour, fold into the cake batter.

Pour into a prepared 9X13 pan. Bake 40-45 minutes or until tests done in your oven. Let cool. Make frosting!

Old time classic, and one of the happiest ways to use oatmeal!
