Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups granulated sugar 400g
  • 2 cups all purpose flour 250g
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup milk I use 1%
  • 1/4 cup butter

Frosting

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons cream
  • 1 3/4 cup sweetened shredded coconut

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and lightly grease a 9x13" baking pan.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, vanilla, and sugar until smooth. Stir in flour and baking powder.
  • Combine milk and butter in a glass measuring cup or bowl. Heat in the microwave on high in 30 second intervals, just until milk is hot (you don't want it to boil!) and butter is melted.
  • Slowly stir into cake batter. Spread into pan.
  • Bake for 22-25 minutes until light golden brown on top -- a toothpick should come out clean or with moist crumbs. Turn oven to broil.
  • Meanwhile, make the frosting: stir together the vanilla, brown sugar, butter, cream and coconut. Spread evenly over cake immediately after removing from the oven. Broil for 2-3 minutes until golden brown.
  • Let cool to room temperature and serve.
