Faye’s Oatmeal Cake

We worked with Faye for many years, and she is a great cook and wonderful person.

1 1/2 cup boiling water
1 cup oatmeal (I use McCann’s quick cooking.)

Mix and let sit a while.

1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs

Cream butter and sugar together in a big bowl, and add eggs and oatmeal. Stir well.

1 1/2 cup flour
3 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

1 cup pecans

Blend all but pecans in a bowl, and fold into butter mixture. Turn out into a 9 x 13 pan. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes. Spread topping over while it’s still warm, and sprinkle with 1 cup pecans.  Set under the broiler for 2-3 minutes.

Topping:

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 white sugar
6 Tbsp butter
1 cup coconut
1/4 cup cream
1 tsp vanilla

Cook sugars and butter in a pan for a few minutes until sugar is dissolved. Add coconut and cream and cook a couple more minutes. Remove from heat and add vanilla.
