This Lazy Daisy Oatmeal Cake has been around a long time and has always been a favorite of my family. I took this cake to functions at work, reunions and family gatherings for years and never brought any home with me.
2 1/2 cups boiling water
2 cups quick cooking oats
1 cup butter or margarine
2 cups sugar
2 cups brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsps. soda
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsps. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
Pour boiling water over oats, cover and let stand for 20 minutes. Beat butter until creamy; slowly add sugars; beat until fluffy. Blend in vanilla and eggs. Add oats mixture and mix well.
Add flour, soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix well. Pour into a sprayed 9 x 13 inch cake pan and bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 1 hour. Let cool.
Note: The last time I made this cake I cut the brown sugar from 2 cups to 1 in the cake. I could not tell the difference.
Frosting: 1 cup melted butter or margarine
2 cups brown sugar
6 tablespoons half and half or can use evaporated milk
1 cup chopped or broken walnuts (can use pecans)
3 cups shredded or flaked coconut
For frosting, mix all ingredients together, spread over cake. Place cake under broiler in oven until frosting becomes bubbly. Serve cake warm or cold.
The picture does not do this cake justice. Everyone that tries this cake, loves it. Enjoy!
