Oatmeal Cake

Serves 12-15

1/2 cup boiling water
1 cup old fashion oatmeal
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup butter-flavored Crisco
2 eggs
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt

Mix boiling water and oatmeal. Let stand 10 minutes. In a large mixing bowl cream sugars and shortening. Add eggs and oatmeal mixture. Mix well. Add dry ingredients. Pour into a greased and floured 9x13" pan. Bake 35 minutes at 350*. Meanwhile, prepare topping.

1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup canned evaporated milk
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup coconut
1 tsp. vanilla

Melt butter and add remaining ingredients. Pour over warm cake and return cake to oven and BROIL for 3-4 minutes until coconut is lightly toasted and top is bubbling.

My thoughts: This is scrumptious...especially when enjoyed warm!

Serve it with: An ice cold glass of milk.
