Lazy Daisy Cake

Lazy Daisy Cake


2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup (200 g) granulated sugar
1 cup (140 g) flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
¼ cup (1dL) milk
4 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons dark-brown sugar
2 tablespoons cream
½ cup (1 dL) grated coconut or chopped nuts


1.                  Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
2.                  Butter and lightly flour an 8 inch square cake pan.
3.                  Beat the eggs with the vanilla until they have thickened slightly.
4.                  Gradually add the granulated sugar and beat thoroughly. 
5.                  Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt together and add to the first mixture, blending until smooth.  Heat the milk and 1 tablespoon of the butter together in a small pan.  When the butter has melted, stir the mil and melted butter into the batter and mix well, the batter will be very liquid.  Pour into the pan and bake for about 25 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.
6.                  Remove the cake from the oven.  Mix the 3 remaining tablespoons of butter, the brown sugar the cream, and the coconut or nuts together in a small pan over low heat until melted and well blended.  Spread over the not cake and brown lightly under the broiler for a minute of two. Taking care that it does not burn.

Note from recipe book:-
This small cake, made with hot milk, is high, light, delicate and very easy to make.  You can omit the broiled topping, if you wish, and frost the cake instead, once it has cooled.  But the traditional Lazy Daisy topping is very, very good.
