Mom's oatmeal cake

Cake
Water, boiling
1 ¼ cups
Oats, quick cooking
1 cup
Butter
1 stick (8 tablespoons)
Brown sugar
1 cup
Eggs
2
Flour, all-purpose
1 ½ cups
Baking soda
1 teaspoon
Cinnamon
½ teaspoon
Sugar
1 cup
Frosting
Coconut
1 cup
Pecans, chopped
1 cup
Sugar
½ cup
Butter
1 stick
Vanilla extract
1 teaspoon
Evaporated milk
¼ cup
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Pour boiling water over oats and butter; let stand 20 minutes.
  3. Add remaining ingredients; mix by hand.
  4. Pour into 8x13 baking pan; bake 35 minutes.
  5. For frosting, combine all ingredients, and bring to a light boil.
  6. Pour over cake; place under broiler for 3 minutes to caramelize sugar and toast the coconut and pecans.
Notes: Tried this one again, but replaced 1/2 cup of the all-purpose flour with almond flour. Like my Mom, I seldom prepare a dish the exact same way twice.
