Chocolate Oatmeal Cake and a Pink Hyacinth!


 Here is a photo of my Pink Hyacinth! This one bloomed first as the tulips and Daffodils are still growing! How exciting to have a light pink flower blooming for Valentines Day! Yay!!! 

Here is my recipe for Chocolate Oatmeal Cake! I forgot to take a photo of it before we consumed it freely! It was pretty good but I have had better. Not sure what I did differently this time...

Chocolate Oatmeal Cake
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup melted butter, cooled
2 eggs
1 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp salt
2 TBL cocoa powder
1 cup quick oats
1 3/4 cups boiling water
1 cup chocolate chips or 5-7 ounces baking chocolate, chopped up

Mix together butter and sugars. Beat in eggs. Mix together flour, salt, baking soda and the add to sugar mixture. Add boiling water to the oats and let rest until soft. Add oatmeal to cake batter, mix in with chocolate chips. Pour into greased 9x13 pan and put in pre-heated 350F oven. Bake for 30 minutes. 
Let cool while you make the traditional marshmallow chocolate frosting. 

6 TBL butter
6 TBL Milk
2cups sugar
1 cup chocolate chips 
1 cup mini marshmallows or 1/2 cup regular oneN
Melt sugar, butter and milk together  and boil for about a minute. Turn off heat and add in chips and marshmallows. Pour over cake as soon as mixed asit sets up quickly. Let frosting cool then serve! 

Happy Tuesday!
