I have a recipe for an oatmeal cake I love. It is very similar to the ingredients of this one, but you pour the boiling water over the oatmeal AND a cup of raisins. However, the frosting recipe that came with the cake I've made for years and years was always a FLOP. I did some searching and found this oatmeal cake's coconut pecan frosting. Hooray! I now have the PERFECT frosting for an oatmeal cake! Next time I'll even try the oatmeal cake recipe listed here. I also didn't have pecans, so I used chopped walnuts. GREAT recipe! Thank you!
