1/2 cup margarine (1 stick)
2 eggs
1 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp soda
1 tsp salt

1 package chocolate chips (2 cups)
3/4 cup chopped walnuts

Add flour to sugar mixture. Mix well. Add half of chocolate chips. Pour batter into greased 9 x 13 pan. Sprinkle with nuts and remaining chocolate chips. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes Tastes best when warm.

Rachel got this recipe from her Ricks college roommate, Katie Gray. When I serve this cake, I like to say it is healthy for you because it has oatmeal in it.
