Oatmeal Chocolate Peanut Butter Snack Cake This light moist cake is a favorite dessert that can be served for any occasion. It is a real crowd-pleaser because it has all the sweet ingredients most of us love. It is easy to make. I get requests for this dessert at family gatherings and office parties. This is a made from scratch cake . I have tried boxed cake mixes for convenience , but the results are not the same. I take this snack cake to potlucks or anytime dessert is my responsibility.
