Lazy Daisy Oatmeal Cake w/ Custard Glaze

I recently made this VERY rich cake for a girls night in, and you could hardly talk over the "mmmmm's" that were coming from each of our mouths! It was SO moist and delicious, and the toppings really made it extra delicious.

Lazy Daisy Oatmeal Cake
Adapted from: Our Recipe Club

1 c. old fashioned oats
1/2 c. boiling water
1/2 c. butter
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt

In a small bowl pour boiling water over oats. Cover & set sit 20 minutes. In a large bowl, cream sugars & butter until light & fluffy. Add eggs & vanilla. Mix in cooked oats until combined. Add dry ingredients to butter mix. Beat until incorporated. Spoon into a grease 8x8 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out with some crumbs (it will be very brown on top). Poke holes in hot cake and drizzle about half of glaze over cake. Cool slightly before serving.

Sweet Custard Glaze:

1/2 c. butter
1 c. evaporated milk
1 c. sugar
2 egg yolks
1 tsp. vanilla

Place all ingredients in a medium sauce pan. Melt together over medium heat, whisking constantly. Bring to a boil and cook until thickened. If there are any bits of cooked egg yolk in sauce, strain before serving.

To serve cake: Top with fresh whipped cream, custard glaze, pecans, and coconut.
