Comfort Food

Everyone has that one food (or several foods) that make you feel better. I'll pretty much eat anything warm on a cold day; my husband will eat anything chocolate.

Today it's cool (I'm freezing, but really it's like 60° outside) and I'm feeding people tonight...perfect combination for warm, comforting Oatmeal Cake with Coconut frosting.

OATMEAL CAKE w/ Coconut Frosting

1 cube butter, cut up
1 1/2 cup boiling water
1 cup quick oats
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs, unbeaten
1 1/2 cup flour
2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla

Combine butter, boiling water and quick oats and let sit. Mix together sugars and eggs in separate bowl, then add to first mixture. Stir in flour, nutmeg, salt, baking soda, cinnamon and vanilla. Place in greased cake pan and bake for 30 minutes at 350°.

1 cup brown sugar
3 tbsp canned milk
1 egg
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup butter
1 1/4 cup coconut

Mix well. While cake is still hot, spread on top. Broil in oven to brown coconut. Watch closely so it doesn't burn.

Doesn't that look amazing?
