Total Time:  1 Hour 30 Minutes
  Serves 10
For the Cake:
1 1/4 cups boiling water
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1 cup butter, melted
2 eggs
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
For the Topping:
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup walnut halves
1/2 cup freshly grated or canned coconut
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Butter a 9-inch springform cake pan and line with parchment or waxed (greaseproof) paper.

In a bowl pour the boiling water over the oats and stir. In another bowl combine both sugars and the melted butter. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the oat mixture until all is well blended. Sift together the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt and add to the oat mixture. Stir until blended.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top. Bake for 1 hour, or until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes before removing the sides of the pan.

In a bowl, combine the sugar, walnuts, coconut, butter, and cinnamon and spread over the top of the cake. Place under a preheated broiler (grill), about 4 inches from the heat, for 4-5 minutes, or until the topping is golden and bubbling. Serve warm or at room temperature.

This recipe is a time machine
My beloved Grandmother, Nanny, used to make this recipe. During the winter, she would have a piece of the cake and a mug of hot chocolate with me when I got home from school. I lost the recipe when we moved away from the farm. This brings back memories from many, many years ago. Thank you for the trip back in time.
