It was about 10:30 in the morning and I realized I had company coming at 1:00 – and that company didn’t like chocolate. (Poor kid.)
All of my favorite go-to quick recipes include chocolate (of course!)
To make matters worse – I was out of butter and margarine.
A quick thumb-through my cookbook collection yielded this recipe – and a quick perusal of the pantry yielded the needed ingredients.
I was back in business!
With just five ingredients – not only were they fast to make – but they were really rich and gooey and yummy!
1 package dry yellow cake mix
2 cups quick- cooking oatmeal (uncooked)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1- 12.5 ounce jar caramel ice cream topping
Mix together the cake mix, oatmeal, and brown sugar. Add the oil and egg; mix well. Spread half of batter in to a greased 9 x 13 pan. Press a ridge around the edge; then spread with caramel topping. Sprinkle remaining batter on top. Bake 30 minutes ate 350 degrees.
