Easy on the budget and better than packaged, try this easy homemade spice cake from ingredients on your shelf. The rolled oats in this moist single layer cake gives it a great texture.

1/3 cup boiling water
1/2 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
3/4 cup undiluted evaporated milk
1-1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup nuts, chopped
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup shortening
2 eggs

Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a 9″ x 9″ baking pan and lightly flour the bottom.

Place the oats in a small pot or metal bowl. Pour the boiling water over the oats and stir in the evaporated milk. Set aside to cool.

Sift together the flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon and cloves; stir in the raisins and nuts.

In a large bowl, cream together the sugar, brown sugar and shortening. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir this mixture into the cooled oats and incorporate thoroughly. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing well.

Pour your batter into the prepared pan and bake for 50 – 60 minutes. Cool on a rack.

To serve, dust with confectioners’ sugar or your favorite frosting.

Yield: 9 servings.
