Oatmeal Cake – Wonderful Memories from Childhood

I have been bugging my mom for this recipe for years and she finally remembered to send it to me.  I got it from her on Wednesday and have made it as quickly as possible for a taste from my past.  I hope you enjoy!!

Oatmeal Cake

 

MIX. . . (and let set 20 minutes)
            1 cup oatmeal (quick)                   1 tsp cinnamon
             1 1/4 cups boiling water               1/2 tsp nutmeg
Cream together
             1 stick butter
             1 cup brown sugar
             1 cup white sugar. . .add to cool oatmeal mixture
ADD. . . 2 eggs
            1 tsp soda
            1 1/2 cups flour
Mix all ingredients well.  Bake at 350 degrees 40 to 45 minutes.  (Use flat, square pan.)   Serve plain or iced.
Once in a while I would add raisins to it.  The only trouble I had is getting it done in the center.  It makes a heavy cake.  But good!
