Lazy Dayz Cake with Brown Sugar Icing

Updated: Sep 18, 2023

It had been years since I’d thought about this cake. Mom had taught me to make it when I was young, but over the years the memory of it faded to the far recesses of my brain. Recently I wanted to make an easy dessert for company, and the memory came rushing back. Did I still have the recipe

Yes and no. After a bit of searching, I found my recipe for the cake itself, but not the icing. Google came to the rescue!  “Coconut Brown Sugar Icing,” just like mom taught me to make. Easy and delicious. Try it and you’re not likely to forget it any time soon.

Servings: 8    Serving slice: one 4″ square piece    Preparation time: 20 minutes Bake and broil time: 60 minutes maximum

Cake Ingredients 2 large eggs 1 cup flour 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon butter 1 cup sugar 3/4 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 cup low-fat milk 1 teaspoon vanilla

Cake Directions Preheat oven to 350 degrees 1. Grease an 8 inch x 8 inch baking pan 2. In a medium-sized bowl, beat eggs well.  3. Add sugar and vanilla. 4. In a separate bowl, mix flour with the baking powder and salt. 5. Add milk and butter to a small pan and heat until lukewarm. 6. Mix all of the ingredients together and pour into the baking pan. 7. Bake for about 30 minutes. It will be done when a toothpick comes out clean.

Yield: 1 cake   Preparation time: 10 minutes  Broil time: approx. 6-10 minutes

Icing Ingredients 1/2 cup butter, softened 2/3 cup brown sugar 1 cup flaked coconut 1/2 cup chopped nuts 3 tablespoons milk ​1 drop pure vanilla extract

Icing Directions 1. Mix all ingredients together 2. Spread on slightly warm cake 3. Place cake about 5 inches from the oven broiler and broil until the top bubbles and slightly browns. (Don’t let it burn!)

I hope you enjoy this dish. Let me know if you’ve tried it and how it turned out. ​Good cooking to you,
