Molasses Oatmeal Cake

Something about winter, and especially this winter, makes me crave molasses. I got this oatmeal cake recipe a few months ago and it seemed the perfect vehicle for adding molasses to yesterday's menu.

In a big ceramic bowl, I put in one cup of oats, 1 cut up stick of butter and 1 1/2 cups of boiling water. Pour the water over top and let it sit for 15-20 minutes.
To this I added 1 cup of raw sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup molasses. Stir together and then add 1 egg, 1/2 tsp baking soda and 1/2 tsp salt. Mix this and then add 1 1/3 cup flour and stir until just mixed.
Pour into an oiled cake pan and bake st 350 for 40 minutes.
