Oatmeal Cake

Do you ever just have a craving for something?  Well, mine happened to be Oatmeal Cake today, actually for a couple of days!  I love the gooeyness of the cake and the crunch of the broiled topping!  Oatmeal is healthy, right?  Add a tall glass of ice-cold milk, and this could be breakfast!  Enjoy and share with friends!

Oatmeal Cake

1 c. quick cooking oats                       1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 c. boiling water                          1 c. brown sugar
1 stick butter or margarine               1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs, well beaten                            1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/3 c. flour                                       1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350.  Grease and flour 9 x 13 pan.
Mix oats and boiling water in bowl.  Lay stick of butter on top and let stand for 20 minutes.  Add other ingredients and mix well.  Pour into pan and bake for 35 minutes.


1 c. coconut                                          1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. chopped pecans                          1/4 c. milk or cream
1/2 stick butter, melted                        1 tsp. vanilla

While cake is baking, mix all topping ingredients together.  After cake is done, carefully spread topping over top.  Place under broiler for 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly crunchy.
