oatmeal cake.

Oatmeal Cake from Shalee:

1 1/4 c water
1 c. oatmeal
1/2 c butter
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. white sugar
2 eggs well beaten
1 1/2 c. flour
1 t baking soda
1/4 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
3/4 t cinnamon
1 t vanilla
1/4 t nutmeg 

Bring water to a boil and add oatmeal (can used old fashioned or quick oats). Remove from heat and add butter. Cover and let stand for 20 minutes. 

Meanwhile, mix the rest of the ingredients together and when ready add the oatmeal mixture.Pour into a 9x13 pan and bake 30-35 minutes at 350 until toothpick comes out clean. 

8 T butter (melted)
4 T cream (half and half, milk, or canned milk will work as well)
1 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. coconut
1/2 c. walnuts
1/2 t vanilla 

Heat broiler. Combine brown sugar, butter, and cream. Beat on a high speed until smooth. Stir in coconut and nuts. Spoon over warm cake; spread to cover. Broil 4-6 inches from heat for 1 - 2 minutes until bubbly and light golden brown. 

*You can leave the coconut and nuts out of the frosting. I threw both of mine in the food processor and turned them into more of a crumb mixture.
