Oatmeal Cake

My kids and grandkids came over for a little evening birthday party. Mindy made me oatmeal cake. One of my favorites.

Oatmeal Cake
1 ½ c. water, boiling
1 ¼ c. oats (not quick oats)
½ c. butter
1 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vinegar
1 ½ c. flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. soda
½ tsp. salt

½ c. evaporated milk
1 c. brown sugar
½ c. butter
1 ½ c. coconut
1 tsp. vanilla
½ c. nuts (optional)

Pour boiling water over oats and ½ cup butter; let stand 20 min. In large bowl mix sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vinegar; mix well. Mix together flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt; add to wet ingredients. Mix well and pour into cake pan. Bake at 350 for 40 min. in a 9 X 13 pan. Mix topping mixture in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Pour over warm cake.

Jack, me and my birthday roses look quite coordinated.

I think I would like Oatmeal Cake, gotta have frosting though. Btw, that cake in the picture looks severely under-candled...
