At shuffleboard on Tues., we had a great cake! The one who brought it said it was an oatmeal cake. I have never heard of that before! Here is the recipe. Oh my! Now this one is from one of Nancy's web sites, but is identical to the one we had. So good!
OATMEAL CAKE T & T 1 cup quick cooking oatmeal 1 stick [1/2 cup] margarine or butter
Pour 1 1/4 cups of boiling water over the oats and margarine. Let stand 20 minutes, covered tightly.
Mix the following ingredients: 1 cup white sugar 1 cup brown sugar 2 eggs [beaten] 1 1/3 cups all purpose flour 1/2 tsp. salt 1 tsp. soda 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Pour into greased 9"x13" pan, Bake 350 degrees until it tests done.
TOPPING: 6 Tablespoons melted butter 1/4 cup cream OR undiluted evaporated milk 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/2 tsp. vanilla 1 cup nuts 1 cup shredded coconut
Sprinkle coconut and nuts on top of warm cake. Cook butter, cream, brown sugar and vanilla until it thickens. Spread over cake. Put under broiler until slightly browned. Cool, cut.
