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!

1 1/2 c. boiling water 1 c. brown sugar

2 eggs, well beaten 1 tsp. vanilla

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
