Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cake

Monday, January 19, 2009

We just found this in an old ward recipe book and decided to try it one night for our Sunday dessert. We all really enjoyed it and I felt like the oatmeal made it at least a little healthier than some desserts. :)

The ingredients:
1-3/4 cups hot water
1 cup oatmeal

1/2 cup butter

1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

1-3/4 cups flour

1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3 Tbs. cocoa

2 cups chocolate chips

Pour hot water over oatmeal and let stand 10 to 15 minutes. Soften butter and add sugars. Mix and add eggs. Add flour, soda, salt, and cocoa. Mix and add oatmeal. By hand, mix in 1 cup of chocolate chips. Pour into greased 9x13" pan and top with remaining chocolate chips. Bake at 350° for 40 minutes or until done in center.

We liked it with a little bit of whipping cream and some Heath bar crumbled on top. Yum.Enjoy!
