Lazy Daisy Oatmeal Cake

This is the cake I used to make quite often on Sundays.

Lazy Daisy Oatmeal Cake (My Favorite)
1 cup quick oatmeal
1/2 cup butter
1 1/4 cup boiling water
2 eggs, well beaten
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cloves
Frosting (coconut topping):
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup melted butter
3 Tbsp milk
3/4 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup chopped nuts
(May add 2 Tbsp cocoa and drop allspice and cloves)
For cake: Combine oats, butter and boiling water. Set aside for 20 minutes. Beat together the eggs, sugars and vanilla. Sift dry ingredients and add, along with the oats, to the sugar mixture. Beat well. Pour into a greased 9X13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 mins, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Cool for a few minutes. Then combine the frosting ingredients, spread on cake and place under the broiler for one min or until frosting begins to bubble. WATCH so that it does not burn.
