2 2/3 cups flour
2 tsp soda


Pour boiling water over oat meal and let stand 20 minutes—Add remainder and stir well. Pour into a greased @ floured 2 inch hotel pan. Bake 350*F 30 minutes.
Make frosting while cake is baking and frost while HOT



Frosting

3/4. Cup margarine
1 cup evaporated milk
1. 1/2. Cups cane sugar
10 ounces coconut flakes
1 cup pecan chopped
2 tsp soda


Bring milk, margarine, sugar to a boil. Remove immediately and add coconut and pecans.
Stir well spread over cake while still hot. Raise oven tem. To 500*F and brown off coconut.
This is very rich. Cut and serve when cold.

This recipe is over 65 years old originally from Bishops cafeteria in Waterloo Iowa

Complements of Chef David Hutchins retired

This is easy to make but it requires a large pan to make it or two medium. And this very good, slightly chewy

How about scalloped potatoes with pieces of ham throughout...A big mac and cheese,a sliced ham and potatoe or macaroni salad, beans and a big pan of corn bread.
