Oatmeal Cake

My very first friend I made when I moved to Vermont introduced me to
this recipe. It is quick and easy and oh, so yummy. What’s more,
oatmeal, walnuts and just a touch of cocoa qualify it for the healthy

Make sure you make it when the family is home so you don’t have to
babysit it all alone–you will never outlast it. And resist the
temptation to add more than 1 tablespoon cocoa. It’s all you’ll need.

Oatmeal Cake

1 3/4 cup boiling water
1 cup oatmeal
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1 stick butter or margarine
2 eggs
1 3/4 cup flour
1 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tablespoon cocoa
12 oz chocolate chips
3/4 cup chopped nuts, optional

Put oatmeal in boiling water and remove from heat. Let stand ten
minutes. Add margarine and sugars, stirring until margarine melts.
Add egg and mix well. Sift dry ingredients and add. Add half the
choc chips and spread batter in 9 x 13 pan. Sprinkle other half of
choc chips and the nuts on top. Bake at 340 degrees for 40 minutes.
