had to make it. This is a soft, tender spice cake with a slightly sweet coconut pecan icing that is broiled, not cooked on the stove. The icing makes this cake; you could eat it on cardboard and still enjoy it.
Make sure it overlaps the edges.
This will help you "lift" the cake out of the pan when you are ready to serve.
This method also works great for brownies!
I used my oil spray (filled with canola oil) and then brushed it to make sure it coated the foil evenly.
You heard me right.
No boiling water, please!
Room temp water will do the job.
Say that seven times really fast. I dare you.
Yes, brown sugar and white sugar ~
Nobody wants a "Swiss cheese" cake full of holes ~
Put it in the oven to bake while you get the good stuff ready...
It is so easy to make!
Add melted butter to some brown sugar ~
Yes, this is skim milk. My kids call it "chalk water."
When my family began to down a gallon of milk a day, I switched to skim milk. Healthier, don't you think?
They were meant to be together in this glorious mix...
Give it a quick stir.
Yes, you have my permission to frost it right away!
Just spread the coconut mixture on top and set your oven on "broil."
Make sure your rack is at least 9" from the broiler. You don't want to burn it...
Toasted coconut, toasted pecans, swirled in a caramelly goodness.
Wait. There's a catch. (pun intended)
You need to let it cool for at least an hour. You don't want to burn the roof of your mouth when you dive into this cake ~
Ooooooh....look how pretty that is!
This is so good, I ate it for breakfast.
You'll want it for breakfast, too.
