Oatmeal Cake with Walnut Frosting

Very Yummy!

Boil 1 1/2 c. water. Turn off heat. Add in 1 c. oatmeal. Let sit for 20 minutes.

2 eggs
1/4 c. oil
1/4 c. milk
1/4 c. honey
1/4 c. liquid rice sweetener (I used the juice from my canned peaches --canned with juice, not syrup)
1/4 c. sucanat (or brown sugar)

Stir in oatmeal.

1 1/3 c. flour (I always use unbleached flour)
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
a little less than 1/2 tsp. salt

Beat till well mixed. Bake in a bundt cake pan or 9x13 at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes (when toothpick comes out clean). Make sure to grease and flour the pan.

FROSTING (double this for a 9x13):
1/4 c. sucanat (or brown sugar)
1 1/2 Tbsp. butter
2 Tbsp. milk

Bring to a boil, stirring well, then turn off the heat. When it has cooled a little, add 1/2 c. chopped walnuts and 1/2 c. coconut flakes. Spread or drizzle over the cake.

These turn out nice and moist and somewhat chewy.
