That's an unusual one, Ilene. Does it rise much? I mean is it really like a cake or more like a bar cookie recipe? Sounds really good.

This is a very good cake. My mom used to make it. It is so moist and rich...awesome. My recipe is so close to yours it's probably silly to post it but I will so you can see. It's funny, just the other day I considered making this and decided to wait until Fall:

Oatmeal Cake

1½ cups water
1 cup quick oats
1 stick butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1½ cups flour
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda

Mix together water and oats, bring to a boil. Let cool 20 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and bake at 350° for 30 minutes.

TOPPING:

1 cup brown sugar
½ cup cream
¼ cup butter
coconut (to thicken)

Combine all ingredients and cook just a few minutes. Pour over cake and put in oven until topping bubbles (just a few minutes).
