I made this tonight and it was sure a hit with the family, it’s an older recipe and one that is loved by many 🙂 Enjoy
What you need
1 cup rolled oats
1 1⁄4 cups boiling water
1⁄2 cup butter or 1/2 cup margarine
1 cup granulated sugar
1⁄2 brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1⁄2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
3⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
1⁄4 teaspoon nutmeg
1⁄4 cup butter, melted
1⁄2 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons cream (I used 1/2 and 1/2)
3⁄4 cup flaked coconut
In a shallow bowl soak oats in boiling water for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile proceed by measuring butter and sugars into the beater bowl and beating until light.
Beat in eggs and vanilla.
Sift and measure flour, sifting again with the soda and spices.
By this time the oats will be soaked and cool.
Remove beaters from the creamed mixture and fold in soaked oats.
Sift flour mixture over and fold in.
Turn in a buttered 9×9″ pan and bake at 350°F for 40-50 minutes.
Remove cake from the oven and put the broiler on.
Mix all the topping ingredients.
Do not remove the cake from the pan but while still hot spread topping over and put under the broiler until bubbly and tinged with gold.
Watch carefully because it can burn easily.
Remove from oven, let cool a little and Enjoy!
