Thinking of Mom today and the aroma of fresh baked Oatmeal Cake with Coconut Topping that waited for us after school.
Pour boiling water over oats and let stand 5 minutes. In a mixing bowl cream butter and sugars. Add eggs to creamed sugars. Alternating with oatmeal mixture, add flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt to the creamed sugars.
Put cake under broiler and broil 2-4 minutes until topping brown. Do not burn. Cool cake before serving.
Oatmeal Cake with Coconut Topping is one of my favorite recipes from Mom's collection of after school treats.
