Lazy Daisy Oatmeal Cake

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.
