- 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 sweetened shredded 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.
Reviews forMoist Lazy Daisy Cake
"the cake is great, but the topping a little too sweet for me. I didn't have any half and half on hand so I used butter pecan coffee creamer. It was only two tablespoons and don't know if that made the difference. I think it would be wonderful with fruit topping and ice cream"
"easy to make. Used with fresh strawberries and ice cream. Will make again!"
"I also remember this cake from my 4H cookbook. Love it."
