Oatmeal Cake

My brother has this every year for his birthday. This year I was making it, getting ready to go camping, and I somehow left out the FLOUR!!! We were in a hurry so my mom said just take it that way. It was AWFUL!!!! So don't skip the flour. :-)

Oatmeal Cake

Pour 1-1/2 cups hot water over 1 cup quick oats. Cool and let stand while you:

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup shortening
2 eggs
Mix in:
1-1/3 cup flour
1 tsp soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon

Pour into greased 9 x 13 pan. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. When it's almost done baking make the frosting.

Frosting-boil 1 minute:
3/4 cube margarine/butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 T. milk
1 cup coconut
1/2 cup chopped nuts

Pour on cake and return under broiler. Watch it closely until it bubbles. Remove, cool, and enjoy!
