LAZY DAY OATMEAL CAKE

 

Ingredients:
1 cup uncooked rolled oats ( instant or regular, I used rolled oats)
1 1/4 cups boiling water
1/2 cup butter or 1/2 cup margarine
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

TOPPING
1/4 cup butter or 1/4 cup margarine, melted
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons cream or 3 tablespoons milk
3/4 cup flaked coconut
1/3 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Directions
In a shallow bowl, soak oats in boiling water for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, proceed by measuring butter and sugars into the beater bowl and beating until light.
Beat in eggs and vanilla.
Sift and measure flour, sifting again with the soda and spices.
By this time, the oats will be soaked and cool.
Remove beaters from creamed mixture and fold in soaked oats.
Sift flour mixture over and fold in.
Turn in a buttered 9×9″ pan and bake at 350°F for 40-50 minutes .
Mix all the topping ingredients.
Do not remove cake from the pan, but while still hot, it spread topping over and put under the broiler until bubbly and tinged with gold.
Watch carefully.
