Chocolate Oatmeal Cake

  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1-1/2 cups oatmeal
  • 3/4 cup margarine (1-1/2 sticks)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1-1/2 cups flour

Place the dry oatmeal into a large bowl. Pour in the boiling water. Add the margarine, stir it a little so the margarine will melt. You can slice the margarine into chunks to make it melt faster. Let this mixture sit for a few minutes while you grease the pan (a big 9 by 13-inch rectangular one). Now add the sugar to the mixture. Beat it really well. The batter should be cool enough now to add the eggs. Beat them in until things are glossy and smooth. Add the vanilla, salt, cocoa and baking soda. Mix very well, and finally stir in the flour. Stir it all up and turn it into a well oiled 9 by 13-inch pan. Bake at 350F for about 35 minutes. This is a very moist, chewy and fudgy cake. Frost as desired. Cut into pieces and serve.
