This recipe came to me via my mom’s side of the family. It comes together very quickly and has a delicious brown sugar-coconut frosted crust on top. Yumm!

You will need:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 c sugar
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 1 1/2 c flour
  • 1 t baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 c milk
  • 4 T butter, divided
  • 2 T cream
  • 5 T brown sugar
  • 3/4 c coconut flakes

Then you will…

  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour a 9×9-inch baking dish.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the eggs well. Add the sugar and vanilla and mix thoroughly.
  3. In a medium bow, combine the flour with the baking powder and salt.
  4. In a small saucepan, heat the milk with one tablespoon of butter just to a boil. Remove from heat.
  5. Add some of the flour mixture to the egg mixture and mix.
  6. Add some of the milk mixture and mix.
  7. Keep alternative until all mixed well.
  8. Pour into the prepared pan.
  9. Bake 20-25 minutes until a tester in the center comes out clean.
  10. Meanwhile, heat the cream with the remaining 3 tablespoons of butter and brown sugar until dissolved.
  11. Stir in the coconut to the cream mixture.
  12. Spread on the cake when nearly done and brown under the broiler.
