  1. In a bowl, combine the water and oats. Sprinkle with chocolate chips (do not stir); let stand for 20 minutes. In a mixing bowl, cream margarine and sugars. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in oat mixture.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda and salt; add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
  3. For frosting, dissolve coffee granules in cream; set aside. In a small mixing bowl, cream margarine; add vanilla and salt. Gradually beat in sugar. Beat in enough of the coffee mixture to achieve spreading consistency. Frost the cake.

This cake was exceptionally moist. Not being fond of frosting, it was omitted. I used regular oatmeal rather than quick cooking and it worked out well.

The cake part was ok but the icing was WAY too sweet.If I make this again,which I doubt,I'll whip up some whipping cream and add a teasoon of coffee granules to it and a bit of sugar and vanilla.

I made this cake 3 times in 2 weeks. Everyone loved it and had seconds. The only thing I thought could be improved was the frosting...it was a bit too sweet.

Excellent recipe. I used some chocolate oatmeal packets for the oats and that worked out great. They included some flax seeds but the extra texture was not a problem. For the frosting, I didn't ...

I reviewed this based on a variation in the past and I realised that it was unfair of me. I will try this again as originally posted :).
