Oatmeal Cake

I love oatmeal and coconut and cinnamon, therefore, I love this cake. I especially like this cake on a fall afternoon or as leftovers for breakfast. Shhh - don't tell!

Oatmeal Coconut Cake:

1 cup oats
1 ¼ cups boiling water
½ cup butter
¾ cup brown sugar
½ cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 ½ cups flour

Combine oats and boiling water-set aside. Mix butter, sugars, and eggs. Add remaining ingredients. Add oats last. Bake at 350° for 35 minutes, in a 13 x 9 inch pan. Take out and turn oven to broil. In a saucepan, add 4 tbsp butter, 1/3 cup evaporated milk. Warm them until butter is melted. Add ½ cups brown sugar. Remove from heat. Add ½ cup coconut. (½ cup oats and nuts are optional). Broil until bubbly—watch carefully so the coconut doesn't burn! Print Friendly and PDF Pin It
