My mom made this cake for Mother's Day. The cake was in the oven baking. When she realized she didn't add the eggs or salt the recipe called for, she thought it would screw up the cake. But the cake came out so moist and yummy I made her write down the recipe, skipping the eggs and salt. She frosts it with vanilla frosting while the cake is still warm to give it a glazed effect. My family loves this cake.

Instructions Checklist

  • Mix milk and vinegar together in a bowl.

  • Stir white sugar, vegetable oil, milk mixture, brown sugar, and butter together in a bowl; add baking soda and baking powder and stir. Mix oats into sugar mixture. Stir flour, 1 cup at a time, into sugar-oat mixture until batter is evenly combined; fold in bananas. Pour batter into the prepared baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can use an electric mixer, but it's a good idea to stir by hand once you add the bananas. This way you still get some yummy little chunks here and there.

For having a recipe that was screwed up it was a nice change. Happy mistakes are always a plus. This recipe was slightly dense however I think it plays it into it's favor because it can easily be baked in a jelly roll style pan and made as snacking bars for after schoolers. I thought it still had a nice flavor and I could taste both the banana and oatmeal. TY very much. Read More

I screwed up even further and forgot to add the vinegar to the milk. It probably would have turned out better if I had. And I always prefer butter to oil for taste. Moral of This Story: Don't get distracted when using a new recipe!!:) Read More

I was trying to find an egg-less recipe to use with my ripe bananas. This was definitely a good choice. I lessened the vegetable oil by one tablespoon because that was all I had on hand. It turned out really good! Great flavor and texture. Read More

I thought that 1 cup of white sugar was a lot. I cut it to 1/2 and it was good. I left the brown sugar as shown. I also added chopped walnuts and chocolate chips. Read More
