Corey's Oatmeal Cake

This is an excellent winter cake - but this one is for my ma - in the states!

Corey's Oatmeal Cake:

2c Oats
3c boiling water
combine and set aside

2c sugar (I use 1 1/2 raw)
2c br sugar (I use Coconut Palm Sugar)
1c butter
cream and set aside

4 eggs
1T vanilla
combine and add to sugar mix

3c plain flour
2t bicarb
1T cinnamon
1t salt

mix all ingredients together well and pour into a 12" greased round springform tin.

Bake 180C or 350F for 40-50 minutes - test centre.

Meanwhile - topping:

2c Coconut
2c Nuts (walnuts/pecans etc)
2c br sugar
1c butter
8T cream
bring to boil 2 minutes.  Pour over a cooked cake and brown in oven till bubbly.

I won't bother putting the nutritional information here - except that it will all go directly to your thighs - no exceptions - no amount of running can burn a slice of this one off, so be sure when you make it you are sharing the majority of it!
