               Here is a recipe I have made over and over for my family. It is really moist,
       delicious and easy to make. One would never know it  was made with OATMEAL.
       It could become one of your favorites. Perfect for a child's school lunch, bring to
       a pot-luck, or with the beverage of your choice, as a snack or dessert.

                                                  OATMEAL  CAKE

               1 +1/4  cups boiling water
               1 cup OLD FASHIONED OATS, uncooked
               1/2 cup of butter
               3/4 cup sugar
               1/2 cup brown sugar, packed firmly
               2 eggs
               1 teaspoon vanilla
               1+1/2 cups all purpose flour
               1 teaspoon baking soda

                4. Add flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon. Mix well.
                5.  Pour into greased 9 X 13 pan. Bake 30 minutes.

                 While cake is baking, cream 1/2 cup butter, 2 cups coconut, 1 cup nuts,
                 finely chopped, 1 + 1/2 cups brown sugar, packed, and 8 - 10 Tablespoons
                 evaporated milk. Mixing  together to make a frosting.

                 Frost cake immediately when it comes out of the oven.
                 Place under broiler until top is brown and bubbly. { WATCH CAREFULLY
