Oatmeal Cake

I remember this cake being very moist and very heavy. I haven’t had it since high school, but it brought back memories when I saw it.

1 1/4 C. boiling water
1 C. quick oatmeal
1/2 C. butter
1 C. brown sugar
1 C. white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 C. flour
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 C. butter
1/2 C. cream
3/4 C. brown sugar
1 C. coconut
1/2 C. pecan pieces

Pour the boiling water over the quick oatmeal; set aside. Cream the butter, brown sugar and white sugar. Add the eggs, vanilla and oatmeal mixture. Add the flour, soda, salt and cinnamon. Put in 9×13″ pan and bake at 350º for 35 to 40 minutes.

TOPPING: Cook the butter, cream and brown sugar in a small saucepan to boiling. Add the coconut and pecan pieces. Pour over hot cake and place under broiler until golden brown.
