Oatmeal Cake

I remember my momma making this cake when I was young. While the others were out playing, I was waiting to lick the spoon.
This is one of only a handful of recipes that she actually wrote down.
Hopefully, I can make one in the near future & take some pictures of it. In the meantime, I hope you'll try it & enjoy it.

1 tsp
vanilla extract
1/2 c
light brown sugar
1 c

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cover the oatmeal with the boiling water & let stand for 20 minutes.
2
Cream butter with the sugar.
Add vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time. Beat well.
Add oatmeal.
3
Sift flour with salt, baking soda, & cinnamon. Add to the first mixture. Beat until smooth. Add pecans.
4
Pour into a greased 9 x 13 glass casserole dish. (I use "Butter Flavor Crisco" to grease my dish.)
Bake for 40 minutes at 350 degrees or until a tooth pick comes out clean.
5
Cool slightly & cover with topping.
Mix all topping ingredients & spread on top of cake.
Brown in the broiler, on 350, for 5-6 minutes, until it starts to bubble on top.
6
For decorations, sometimes I place pecan halves all around the outside edge of the top of the cake.
Kinda makes it look more purty.
