How to Make Oatmeal CakeStart by greasing a 3 quart baking dish.
The next step is to make the oatmeal. Pour boiling water over quick rolled oats and stir together. Let it cool.
With a mixer, cream the butter, sugar and brown sugar. Add eggs and beat mixture until it’s fluffy.
In another bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
Add the dry ingredients alternately with the oatmeal to the butter mixture and stir to combine everything.
Spread into the prepared baking dish. Bake for 45 minutes at 350F or until a toothpick comes out of the centre clean.

While the cake is baking, mix together the Oatmeal Cake topping.
Stir together melted butter, brown sugar, coconut, walnuts, cream and vanilla extract.
Spread the mixture on top of the baked cake.
Broil 4 inches from the burner until just melted and bubbly. My cake took about 2 minutes under the broiler.
