1 cup quick-cooking oats
1-1/2 cups boiling water
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup flaked coconut
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup fat-free half-and-half
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a small bowl, combine oats and water; let stand for 20 minutes. In a large bowl, combine the sugars, applesauce and eggs. Add oat mixture; mix well. Combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, baking soda and nutmeg; gradually add to batter and mix well.
Pour into a 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
Combine frosting ingredients; spread over hot cake. Broil 6 in. from the heat for 1-2 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly.
