Amish Oatmeal Cake

1-1/4 cups boiling water
1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1-1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla

2/3 cup brown sugar
1 cup walnuts, chopped
6 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla

Pour boiling water over oatmeal and let set 20 minutes.

Cream shortening and sugar well. Add unbeaten eggs one at a time, beat in well after each addition. Blend in oatmeal mixture.

Stir together flour, spices, soda, and salt. Fold into oatmeal mixture. Add vanilla.

Bake in greased and floured pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.

For topping: mix brown sugar, and walnuts well. Add melted butter, cream and vanilla. While cake is still hot, pour on topping and put under broiler for 2 minutes or until brown.

*My Notes:*
-This was perfect for a Thanksgiving dessert! My family went nuts over it!
-Instead of putting the batter in a cake pan, I made two loaves of it!
