This cake features a surprise layer in the middle that's revealed when it is cut into squares for serving. It's important that you cream the butter and sugar thoroughly before adding the eggs and beating until well incorporated. But avoid overmixing once the dry ingredients are added, stirring just until they are no longer visible. The oat, yogurt, and cinamon filling doubles as the topping, which turns a glorious shade of golden brown during baking.
