Old Fashioned Oatmeal Cake

From my friend Debbie - another "old fashioned rustic" cake. It is so yummy!

Her family hates raisins, mine love them so sometimes I throw some raisins in the batter too. If I do, I cut the sugar by about 1/4 cup

Add to the oatmeal mixture and beat to blend.

3Whisk together the flour, nutmeg, cinnamon, salt, baking soda. Stir into the oatmeal mixture just until blended. If you love raisins, now is the time to stir 3/4 cup of them into the batter.

4Pour the batter into a greased 9" x 13" pan and bake for 35 minutes at 350 degrees F.

5While the cake is baking, make the frosting. In a medium bowl mix all the frosting ingredients.
