Soft Oatmeal Cake with Soft Caramel Candies. Kaerahelbekook lehmakommidega

To be true, I do not know how to translate ” Lehmakomm”. I translated soft caramel candy. But in real life, I mean candies, produced in Estonia, Poland or Latvia ( and Latvian candies are the best!!) with cow picture on the package.

These candies are similar to toffees, but little bit different, I believe you can replace them with toffees (Whether Original) or dulce de leche or some similar soft caramel candies.

Use some seasonal berries or fruits: apples, rhubarb.
