Ingredients

  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • TOPPING:
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • Dash salt

Directions

In a microwave-safe bowl, combine oats and water. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 2-3 minutes or until thickened, stirring once; set aside.
In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars. Add eggs; beat well. Beat in vanilla and oat mixture. Combine dry ingredients; gradually add to oat mixture and mix well. Pour into a greased 11-in. x 7-in. microwave-safe dish. Shield corners with small triangles of foil.* Microwave, uncovered, at 50% power for 8 minutes. Cook on high for 6 minutes or until when center is touched, cake clings to finger while area underneath is almost dry. Place on a wire rack.
Combine topping ingredients in a microwave-safe dish; heat, uncovered, on high for 6-7 minutes or until thicken and bubbly, stirring every 2 minutes. Spread over warm cake. Yield: 8 servings.
Editor's Note: Shielding with small pieces of foil prevents overcooking of food in the corners of a square or rectangular dish. Secure foil firmly to dish and do not allow it to touch insides of microwave.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested in a 1,100-watt microwave.

"It very tasty and moist and didn't have to use the oven which heats up the kitchen even more on a hot summer day."
