Moist Lazy Daisy Cake
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min.
Only checked 4 stars because I didn’t bake your cake, but want to comment: My mom, who would be over 100 now, always got requests for this cake. It was such a hit. She put walnuts or pecans, or both into the frosting before broiling it. I’ve taken it to potlucks and it is always popular with my friends, too. I’ve also seen a recipe from the 1940s that called for oatmeal as an ingredient in the cake, but have never tasted it.
This site cuts off comments SO 2nd try. My Pastors wife gave me this recipe several years ago. She called it Goofy Cake, it is perfect every time.
I did not care for this cake. The topping was very good and I think I will try it on another cake. This cake reminds me of a sponge cake and it just is not tasty. For my liking it is a bit to heavy and what I would call a wet cake. I made it exactly as the recipe stated. I won't make it again. I felt like I could be eating something better for a dessert. This in my mind was wasting calories when I could have used them on something I would enjoy more. I did notice that this cake, according to the reviews, tends to be a family recipe that several reviewers have been eating for years. Maybe that was my problem because this was the first time I tried it.
Very quick and easy. I made 12 cupcakes. Didn't have milk so I diluted 1\4 cup half
This was amazing. Super easy, quick and delicious. And thanks for the tip about the Cake flour
Read through this recipe and said WOW, this will be a great cake. I’m making it now. Half way thru the process my brain woke up. My Mother-in-law gave me this recipe but she calls it Poor Man’s Cake. She adds 3/4 cup chopped pecans to the topping. So I’ll be adding the pecans to this. There are a few other differences between the two, and that’s ok. Still really really love this cake. So does my husband.
Thank you for sharing this recipe. My mom would make this and it was always one of my favorites. I could never find it in her recipe nooks after she passed away. THANKS AGAIN!

This cake is loved by anyone who likes coconut. Easy recipe that stays moist. Cake always disappears quickly. The topping is what makes this cake so addicting. No changes are needed to recipe at all. You will get requests for recipe if served to guests.
This cake is delicious and very easy to make. I did not have cake flour, I only had all purpose flour, so for an easy fix you take out 2 TBSP of the flour and replace it with 2 TBSP cornstarch. Cake was very moist and the caramelized topping is delicious! This recipe is a keeper!!
