I tried this recipe and used baking soda instead of baking powder. It came out really good looking and not moist like others said. I did not care for the taste though. My husband thought it was ...

Made using the baking powder not baking soda. Taste was good but texture was too wet to be considered an Angel Food Cake. This was not as dense as a quick bread ( I ground the oatmeal into a f...
