Oatmeal chocolate chip cake

This is a lovely little snack cake recipe. It's not too sweet, but has just enough sweetness to curb any sweet tooth. This is great without any frosting at all. This is also a borrowed pix but boy is it pretty. You can find it here.

1 3/4 cups boiling water
1 cup oatmeal
1 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
1 cup white sugar
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter or margarine, softened
2 large eggs, beaten
1 3/4 cups flour
1 tbsp. cocoa
1 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 (12 oz.) pkg. chocolate chips
3/4 cup walnuts

1. Pour boiling water over oatmeal and let stand 10 minutes.

2. Stir in sugars and margarine until margarine melts.

3. Add eggs and mix well.

4. Stir in flour, salt, cocoa, soda, and salt. Add 1/2 package chocolate chips to batter and pour into greased 9x13-inch pan.

5.Sprinkle the rest of the chips and nuts on top.

6. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
