I based this cake on ingredients we had in the pantry; we're moving soon and don't need to buy any extra food.
I was trying to figure out what to do with oatmeal and coconut, and I came upon this recipe for Coconut-Topped Oatmeal Cake. It sounds a little crazy, but when you look at the ingredients (lots of brown sugar and butter) it begins to sound appealing. As far as I know, the batter was delicious and the topping tastes pretty good; the real test will be to see if anyone likes it tomorrow night (I'm taking it to a clothes swap party!).
It looked so pretty in my bundt pan!
For future reference, it was supposed to be made in a rectangular pan. I realized afterward that the purpose of serving it in the rectangular pan was so that the cake would soak up all the buttery coconut topping. I baked it in a bundt pan because I thought it would be prettier that way. I always like round cakes better. I am a round cake elitist. Oh well.
