Oatmeal-Chocolate Chip Cake

Posted by Donna:

Tonight after our worship services, we had a going away pot luck meal for our youth minister and his family. It's always fun trying out the recipes that the ladies bring. We all come home with something new to try. I decided to try this new one out as well.

1-3/4 cups boiling water
1 cup quick cooking oats
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
3 T. milk
1/2 cup butter or margarine
3 eggs
1-3/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 T. cocoa
1 (12 oz.) pkg. chocolate chips, divided
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

Pour boiling water over the oatmeal; let it stand at room temperature for 15 minutes. To the oatmeal add the sugars, milk, butter, and eggs; beat well. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, and cocoa. Gradually stir into oatmeal mixture. Stir in 1 cup chocolate chips. Pour into a greased 9 x 13 pan. Srinkle the remaining chocolate chips and walnuts or pecans on top. Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes.

This cake is very moist.
