Oatmeal Cake

Here is the Oatmeal Cake recipe that I talked about in yesterday's post.

Oatmeal Cake

1 cup oatmeal
1 1/3 cups boiling water
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 stick butter
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs
1 1/3 cups flour
1 tbsp. cocoa

Add boiling water to oatmeal and set aside.
Cream sugars, butter, cinnamon,soda & salt.
Add eggs, flour & cocoa.
Add oatmeal & water mixture.
Bake in 13 x 9 for 35 minutes at 350 degrees.
While that is baking mix up the topping ingredients.

1 cup brown sugar
1/4 c. canned milk
1 stick butter
1 cup flaked coconut

Mix all in saucepan over heat till melted.
After cake has baked the first 35 minutes then you spread on the topping and put under the broiler for 5 minutes or till brown.
I never mess with the broiler, I just place the cake back in the oven and let it bake another 5-10 minutes till brown.

This is one of my all time favorite cake recipes.

I make a similar cake without chocolate and with walnuts in the icing. So wonderful! Thinks for sharing this one with us.
