Why lazy daisy? I don't know. We got the recipe from an elementary school cookbook.
1 1/4 cup boiling water 1 cup oatmeal 1/2 cup butter 1 cup white sugar 1 cup brown sugar 1 tsp vanilla 2 eggs 1 1/2 cup flour 1 tsp baking soda 3/4 tsp cinnamon 1/4 tsp nutmeg 1. Mix the oatmeal with the boiling water and let it sit for 20 minutes. 2. Beat together butter, eggs, sugar and vanilla. 3. Add the dry ingredients and spices and the oatmeal. 4. Bake 30-40 minutes in 175 C oven. 5. Prepare topping if desired. Topping 1 cup brown sugar (this is not a healthy cake but it is yummy!) 6 tbsp butter 1/4 cup cream (like I said above) 1 cup coconut, shredded 1/2 cup chopped nuts (I don't usually use the nuts) 1. Combine these ingredients in a small saucepan, then spread on the cake and broil until the topping is bubbly and lightly browned.
