Moist Lazy Daisy Cake Recipe
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup cake flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons half-and-half cream
- 1 cup flaked coconut
- In a large bowl, beat eggs, sugar and vanilla on high until thick and lemon-colored, about 4 minutes. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; add to egg mixture. Beat on low just until combined. Heat milk and butter in a small saucepan until butter melts. Add to batter; beat thoroughly (the batter will be thin). Pour into a greased 9-in. square baking pan. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until cake tests done. Cool slightly. For frosting, blend all ingredients well; spread over warm cake. Broil about 4 in. from the heat for 3-4 minutes or until the top is lightly browned. Yield: 9 servings.

Carrie, thanks for sharing your family's recipe---it reminds me of my Gran, too!
My husband liked this cake, but I thought the topping was way too sweet. The cake was good, but not the topping. This cake might taste good with another topping such as fresh strawberries.
We loved this! I made it for a friend who doesn't like coconut, so I left the coconut off. Next time, if I do that, I'll put 1/2 to 1/3 of the frosting on the cake, as it was a little overpowering.
Also, next time I'm making a double batch, because this cake was eaten in record time!
My cousin gave me the best advice: use real butter and poke holes into the top of the cake before applying the icing. I took it a step further and used vanilla infused turbinado sugar in the cake. Delicious!!!
Really love this cake. There is another on the site with more ratings, but i compared them and they are virtually identical apart from being for different sized pans.
