Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cake...

I love this cake, it's moist and chewy! It's from one of my old Taste of Home Magazines, the picture is too. My picture didn't do it justice. Make this just once and you'll make it over and over! Enjoy!

1-3/4 cups boiling water
1 cup uncooked oatmeal

1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened

3 eggs

1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking cocoa
1/4 teaspoon salt

1 package (12 ounces) chocolate chips, divided
3/4 cup chopped walnuts

In a bowl, pour water over oatmeal. Allow to stand 10 minutes.
Add sugars and butter, stirring until the butter melts.
Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
Sift flour, soda, cocoa and salt together. Add to batter. Mix well.
Stir in half the chocolate chips.
Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan.
Sprinkle top of cake with walnuts and remaining chips.
Bake at 350° for about 40 minutes.
Yield: 12 servings.
