Chocolate Oatmeal Cake is a delicious cake recipe without icing. Imagine a brownie, cake and a chocolate chip cookie in one and you have the best way to describe this delicious treat.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl- pour boiling water over oatmeal and allow to stand for 10 minutes
Cream together the butter, brown sugar and white sugar using a stand or hand mixer.
Add in eggs and beat until just combined. Add in the oatmeal mixture.
Add in the flour, baking soda and cocoa until just combined. Do not over mix the flour.
Add in half the chocolate chips and half the walnuts. Stir the batter one last time to distibute them throughout.
Flour and butter a 9x13 inch pan.
Pour in the batter and top it with the remaining nuts and chocolate chips.
Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Prepare to be amazed on the texture and flavor.
NOTE: The original recipe uses margarine. I had butter on hand and it worked great in the recipe. I also used salted butter so I omitted the salt in the original recipe.
