Add the eggs one at a time, beating for a minute after each egg. Beat in the vanilla and oatmeal.


Now sift together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and cayenne. Sift directly into the huge bowl containing the oatmeal mixture.


Pour mixture into a greased 9 x 13 inch baking pan and bake on center rack at 350 F for about 40 minutes.
