This is one of my favorite cakes from when I was little. In fact, I always asked for this cake for my birthday because I loved it so much. It is simple, but delicious. I have tried other oatmeal cakes, but none measure up to my Mom's. I hope you enjoy it.
Preheat oven at 350 degrees. Pour boiling water over oatmeal and set aside for 20 minutes.
Cream butter and sugars, add eggs. Beat well.
Add vanilla and oatmeal mixture. Add flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Mix well. Put in greased 9x13 inch pan. Bake for 30 minutes.
For Topping: Melt butter and add coconut, nuts, brown sugar, and milk. Mix well. Frost cake when you take it out of the oven, and broil until the top is brown. (Watch it carefully so it doesn't burn.)
