Oatmeal Bread

My cousin Roxanne submitted this to the family cookbook. I have adapted it a little. I love it because it uses leftover oatmeal. I will make a few loafs and freeze when I have a bunch of left over oatmeal. DB took some to work and this coworkers wanted the recipe. Here it is:
Mix together:
1c leftover oatmeal
1c boiling water
1/2c oil
1c brown sugar
1c white sugar
2 beaten eggs

1tsp baking soda
1 1/3c flour plus 3Tbsp
1 tsp cinnamon
1c nuts (optional)

Bake 30 to 50 minutes in oiled loaf pan until toothpick comes out clean (time varies by size of loaf pan). Put loaf pans on a cookie sheet as once the topping is added it tends to go over the side of the pan.

While baking mix together topping:
3 Tbsp butter
1c coconut
1c brown sugar
3Tbsp cream
Put topping on loaf and cook 10 minutes more.
