Lazy Daisy Cake

* 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.

The lazy daisy cake recipe was a favorite of our family when I was a kid (in the 1950s). So glad to have found it here and to re-introduce to our family now. Thanks!
