    Amish Oatmeal Cake

    a.. 1 3/4 cups leftover breakfast oatmeal made from regular oatmeal (not instant or quick)
    b.. 2/3 cup dark or golden raisins
    c.. 3/4 cup boiling water
    Place raisins in a small bowl and pour boiling water over them. Stir well and cover. Allow raisins to sit for about 10 minutes. Add the cooked oatmeal, Stir and recover and allow to sit for an additional 10 minutes.
    Into a medium bowl, sift the following and set aside:

    a.. 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
    b.. 1/2 tsp. baking soda
    c.. 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
    d.. 1/2 tsp. grated nutmeg
    e.. 1/2 tsp. salt
    In a large bowl, cream:
    a.. 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
    b.. 1 cup sugar
    c.. 1 cup dark brown sugar
    Add and beat well:
    a.. 2 eggs
    b.. 1 tsp. vanilla
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Add the cooled oatmeal mixture and beat again until mixture is well mixed. Fold in flour mixture and mix well. Pour batter into a greased and floured 13x9 inch pan. Bake for 35 minutes or until the cake springs back when touched lightly with your fingers.
    We do not put a frosting on this cake, but you may if you like. We often ate it for breakfast on weekends when I was a child. It's just a very simple good-flavored healthy cake. Enjoy.
