A Collection of Our Favorite Things

  • Mom Cherry's Oatmeal Cake

    Many years ago I made my first trip to Kerens, Texas to meet my boyfriend's family. We had met at Baylor and I had quickly fallen in love with this handsome and sweet country boy. When we arrived, his mother had this cake sitting—still warm—on the counter. The smell filled their home and she offered me a big piece, not even knowing that I loved sweets. I fell in love with it and every time I returned for a visit, she had it waiting for me. Mom Cherry became my mother in law (thank goodness!) and she continued to surprise me with this delicious cake.

    Every time I bake it, I am taken back to those sweet, sweet days. I sincerely hope it will become a family favorite and spark some sweet memories for your family also.
