Oatmeal Cake with Broiled Coconut Frosting, from Gael

Oatmeal Cake with Broiled Coconut Frosting, from Gael

Got this from a woman named Ann Filhart on my e-mail book list. She says, "Not exactly healthy, since whenever I plan to make it I always think, 'buy a pound of butter', but delicious."
13 x 9 pan, 350 degrees, 30 min.

Pour 1 & ½ cups boiling water into a glass bowl. Add 1 cup quick oats (you can also use old-fashioned, but the texture is different) Mix and let stand 20 min.

Cream ½ cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar

Beat 2 eggs until foaming and combine with the creamy mixture

In a separate bowl, mix:

1 & ½ cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt

Add to creamed mixture along with

1 tsp vanilla

Mix, then add oatmeal, mix again, and pour into greased pan.

While cake is baking,
Mix in a saucepan on the stove:

1 & ½ sticks of butter
1 & ½ cups of brown sugar
1 & ½ cups of coconut
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup of chopped nuts (optional) but really tasty

As soon as the cake comes out of the oven, spread the unbelievably delicious mess on top of it, and put it under the broiler until bubbly. Keep a close eye on it – it can go from perfect to burnt in a short time!

Enjoy – this cake is even better the second day.
