Lazy Daisy Cake

{This is the kind of dessert you can make almost any time because it is quick and easy and you most likely have the ingredients on hand.}

1/2 c. milk
1 c. flour
1 T. butter
1 t. vanilla
2 eggs
4 T. brown sugar
1 c. sugar
5 T. butter
1/2 t. baking powder
4 T. canned milk
1/4 t. salt
1/2 c. coconut

Heat milk to scalding and remove from heat. Add butter. Beat eggs and add sugar, baking powder, salt and milk/butter mixture. Add flour and vanilla and beat well. Pour into an 8”x8” square cake pan (or double recipe for a 9”x13”).

Bake at 375 for 20 minutes.

Mix together brown sugar, butter, canned milk and coconut for topping. Spread over still warm cake and place under the broiler just until topping is lightly browned and bubbly.

By canned milk, do you mean evaporated milk or sweetened condensed?

I've made it with both, but I think I prefer condensed.
