    Amazingly Moist Oatmeal Molasses Cake

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup oatmeal
    • 1 stick butter (8 tablespoons)
    • 1 1/2 cup boiling water
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1/2 cup brown sugar ((light or dark, okay))
    • 3/4 cups molasses ((light, or full though more intense; blackstrap molasses really too strong)
    • 1 egg
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 1/3 cup flour

    Directions

    Step 1
    Get out a big bowl. Dump in a cup of oatmeal, a chopped-up stick of butter, and 1 1/2 cups boiling water.
    Step 2
    Stir it up a little bit (not too much) and let it sit for around 20 minutes lidded or covered with foil.
    Step 3
    Add 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar and 3/4 cup molasses, and stir it all up.
    Step 4
    Add an egg, 1/2 tsp baking soda and 1/2 tsp. salt. Mix well.
    Step 5
    Add 1 1/3 cup flour and mix well until batter is fully blended.
    Step 6
    Pour batter into a buttered and floured cake pan. I like to use a larger 10" springform pan. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
