Oatmeal Cake

Doesn't anyone eat desserts in this family?  I'm going to share my two favorite cakes.

1/4 C boiling water
1 C dry oatmeal

Pour boiling water over oatmeal set aside and let stand 20 min.

1 C brown sugar
1/2 C butter
1 C white sugar

2 eggs
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 C flour
combing oatmeal last (sometimes I add this befor it has set 20 min. and it still turns out fine)

spread batter in 9x14 greased baking dish.

7 TBS butter
1/4 C evaporated milk
1 1/2 C brown sugar
1 C coconut
1 tsp vanilla
1 C chopped wall nuts

mix ingredients then dollup on top of uncooked oatmeal batter.  Bake 350* for 45 min.
