Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cake

1 3/4 cup boiling water
1 cup 1 minute oatmeal
1 cup lightly packed brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup margarine (1 stick)
2 eggs
1 3/4 cup flour
1 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup cocoa
1 pkg chocolate chips
3/4 cup chopped walnuts

Pour boiling water over oatmeal. Let stand for 10 minutes. Add brown and white sugar and margarine. Stir until margarine melts and add eggs. Mix well. Sift together flour, soda, salt and cocoa. Add flour to sugar mixture. Mix well. Add half of chocolate chips. Pour batter into greased 9x13 pan. Sprinkle with nuts and remaining chocolate chips. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes. Tastes best when warm.

Rachel got this recipe from her cousin, Eliza. It is always a big hit when ever we serve it. I tell people this is a very healthy cake because it has oatmeal in it.
