Easy Broiled Frosting

When I was a kid, Mama used to make the most wonderful Oatmeal Raisin Cake and top it with this easy broiled topping made with coconut and chopped nuts. She got the recipe from her best friend at the time, Lois Wallace. Just this past year, I ran across a vintage 1950s recipe on Pinterest called "Lazy Daisy Cake", that has essentially the same frosting...

Bake your favorite cake in a 9x13" pan. Spice, Oatmeal, Carrot and Chocolate Cakes all are delicious with this frosting. Set aside to cool and make the frosting:

In a quart-size measuring cup set aside 1-1/2 cups of chopped walnuts or pecans and 1-1/2 cups of coconut. In a 2 quart saucepan, mix 3/4 cup canned milk, 1 cup brown sugar and 1 cube of butter. Bring this to a boil, turn down heat and let it bubble for 3 full minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and allow to cool for about 15 minutes.

While the frosting cools, turn you oven broiler to high. Once the cake and frosting are slightly cooled, spoon the frosting onto the cake, being sure to get it all along the edge. This is a generously portioned recipe, and there is plenty (which you want, because it is soooo yummy!). Put the frosted cake in the oven under the broiler (not too close) and broil about 5 minutes. I would suggest staying right by the oven, as this scorches quickly.

Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool as long as you can stand it. Yumm, Yumm, Yumm!
