Mom’s Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cake

Megan1665 views

This was one of my favorite Sunday evening desserts Mom would throw in the oven after church. Now that I am a busy mom myself, I understand why she loved this cake. It is a quick fix with a moist sponge, crunchy walnuts (only on half the cake, because every family has nut-haters, right?), and smooth chocolate chips. You have to eat this cake warm with a glass of milk to get the best experience. Enjoy!
