Momma D's Oatmeal Cake


This cake is a Nelson family tradition and it's delicious! Very moist, very sweet and with a bit of golden glazed coconut on the top- I've fallen hard for it too. Let me know what you think!
1 stick melted margarine
1 cup quick style oatmeal (if you only have old fashioned, put it in the blender first)
1 1/4 cups boiling water

Combine and let stand for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile blend
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 lightly beaten eggs

after 20 minutes add this to the oatmeal mixture.
Then sift in

1 1/3 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg

Pour batter into a greased 9x13" pan and bake for 30 minutes at 350. When cake is done, let it cool thouroghly and then add the finishing touch- a decadent coconut glaze!
1 stick melted margarine
1/4 cup canned milk (regular milk is just fine too)
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flaked coconut
Spread this mixture on the cooled cake and then place under broiler until golden. Watch it closely as it can singe quickly!

Enjoy a nice gooey slice with a cup of coffee. Delish!

One stick here in the U.S is 1/2 cup. I'm so glad your flan came out well- wasn't it yummy? I hope you like this one too.
