Oatmeal Cake

1 1/2 c boiling water
1 c quick cooking oatmeal
1 sq margarine

Pour water over oatmeal; add butter. Let stand until butter melts.
2 beaten eggs 1 tsp cinnamon
1 c white sugar 1 tsp nutmeg
1 c brown sugar 1 tsp soda
1 1/3 c flour 1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt 1 c raisins(optional)

Combine all ingredients and bake 35 min at 350*.

Quick Caramel Frosting (will need to make 2 batches)

1/2 c margarine
1/2 c brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 c canned milk
2 1/4 c powdered sugar

Heat butter and brown sugar on low heat until melted. Add milk, bubble a minute, then cool. Add powdered sugar and vanilla, beat with hand mixer until smooth. I pour this on the cake as soon as it comes out of the oven so it soaks into the cake a bit. Then I make another batch of frosting and put on as soon as the cake is cooled.
