Oatmeal Cake

This cake is so moist and yummy, it's sure to become a family favorite.

Oatmeal Cake
350° 35-40 minutes

1 Cup sugar
1 Cup brown sugar
1/2 Cup shortening
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 Cups flour
1 1/2 Cups boiling water
1 Cup oatmeal (quick-oats, not old fashioned)
(For top- 1/2 container vanilla frosting)

In a medium bowl, combine baking soda, salt, cinnamon and flour. In a separate bowl, pour boiling water over oatmeal. Let stand for about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, blend sugars, shortening, eggs and vanilla in large bowl. Add flour mixture to the sugar and blend. Add oatmeal and mix fairly well.

Bake in lightly greased 13x9 pan @ 350° for 35-40 minutes. Frost immediately with 1/2 can vanilla frosting (it will melt on the top) and serve in about 20-30 minutes, while still warm.
