1 c. granulated sugar
1 c. brown sugar, firmly packed
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1 c. brown sugar

Pour boiling water over oats. Let stand until cool. Cream shortening and sugar. Add eggs, oats, and dry ingredients. Bake about 1 hour at 350 degrees. Mix topping ingredients together. Pour on top on partially cooled cake and place in broiler for 2 or 3 minutes or until brown.

  1. I made this today! And it was a big hit with the entire family! It only needed 45 min to bake...I wonder if that is an altitude thing? Thanks for the recipe!
