Walnut Orange Coffee Cake

WALNUT ORANGE COFFEE CAKE

1 c quick-cooking oats (I use Old Fashioned)
1 1/2 c orange juice (This time I used fresh squeezed as I had many oranges to use up)
1/2 c butter
1 1/2 c sugar
1/2 c packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 t vanilla extract
1 3/4 c all-purpose flour (I use wheat)
1 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1/4 t ground cinnamon
1/2 c chopped walnuts
1 T grated orange peel

Topping:
1 1/2 c packed brown sugar
3/4 cup butter, cubed
3 T grated orange peel
3 T orange juice
3 c flaked coconut
1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts

In a small bowl, stir oats and orange juice until softened; set aside. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars; beat in eggs and vanilla until well combined. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; add to the creamed mixture alternately with oat mixture. Stir in walnuts and orange peel. Pour into a greased 13x9x2 baking dish. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

In a small saucepan combine brown sugar, butter, orange peel and juice. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in coconut and walnuts. Gently spread over warm cake. Broil 4 inches from the heat for 2 minutes or until the topping is bubbly.
