Old Fashioned Oatmeal Cake

This isn't the most healthy dessert, to be honest  with you I think I have given up on trying to make desserts healthy.  I love to try to eat as healthy as possible, but when it comes to dessert I am a bad bad momma:)  So if you want to be bad with me you MUST give this cake a try.. Plus if you like any thing heirloom I think this fits in that category (Its says Old Fashioned in the title doesn't it?) :)


For The Cake:
1-½ cupQuick Cooking Rolled Oats
1-¼ cupBoiling Water
1 cupSugar
1 cup Packed Brown Sugar
½ cupsButter, Softened
1 teaspoonVanilla
3 Eggs
1-½ cupAll-purpose Flour

½ teaspoonsBaking Powder
½ teaspoonsSalt

⅔ cups Packed Brown Sugar
    ¼ cupsButter, Melted
¼ cupsHeavy Whipping Cream 
1 cupCoconut
1 cupChopped Walnuts Or Your Choice Of Nuts
How to Prepare 
In small bowl, combine rolled oats and boiling water; let stand 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 13×9-inch pan.
In a large bowl, combine the sugars and butter; beat until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs; blend well. Add oatmeal and all the remaining cake ingredients; mix well.
Pour batter into the greased and floured pan.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 35 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
