Reviews for Lazy Daisy Cake
"The cake was more dense than I like but had a really good taste. Next time I make it, I'll broil the icing a little bit longer."
"This is a great cake, simple to make and a great pot luck or picnic dessert. Have been making since the recipe was first printed in1995."
"My mother use to make this. I also made it for years. I love the icing and couldn't remember how to make the icing. I didn't know if my mother made it up or if I would really find it. And I did. thank you"
"This cake is SOOOO yummy... very moist and the icing is delicious..."
"please remove rating - wrong recipe"
"This is one of my favorite cakes. I don't think I have ever come across anyone that didn't love it."
"This yummy cake is a huge hit at my Church coffee hour. It has a very "old fashioned" taste to it, I think because of the hot milk. Do not be afraid to make this cake, it is super easy and the results are fool-proof, just don't over broil the topping."
"Scrumptious!!! It's good with chopped pecans added to the topping as well. I use 1 cup coconut and 1 cup chopped pecans. Yummy!!"
"This cake is delicious- the topping is so Yummy! My sister and I often would swipe some of the topping to eat, leaving a bare cake beneath!"
"As a child my Grandmother made a "lazy Daisy Cake" for me. Well she actually made two, one for me and one for everyone else. I lost the recipe and was so glad to find this. The only thing different is the topping. I believe she omited it as I don't remember it and actually didn't like it. I think it would be better with just a brown sugar & butter carmelization and forget the coconut. Cake tasted just like Grandmas! So Yum!"
