Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cake

100 years ago when I worked at a museum in Wyoming, I went through all the museum’s cookbooks, and snagged a couple recipes. This is one of those! It’s a moist, filling, delicious oatmeal cake I’d definitely eat again!

Ingredients:

  • 1 3/4 cups boiling water
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats, uncooked
  • 1 stick unsalted butter (the used Oleo, I voted no…leo)
  • 1 cup lightly packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 12 ounce package chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup chopped nuts (I used peanut butter chips/more chocolate chips)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9×13″ pan and set aside.

In a large bowl, pour the boiling water over the oats.

Let stand for 10 minutes.

Add the sugars and butter, stirring until the butter has melted.

Add the eggs and mix well.

Add the dry ingredients and half the chocolate chips and stir until evenly mixed.

Gently transfer the batter to the prepared pan, then sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips and nuts (or peanut butter chips) over the top.

Bake 40 minutes, or until it passes the toothpick test.
