Hot Milk Cake with Broiled Coconut Frosting + VIDEO (Lazy Daisy Cake)
This Hot Milk Cake with Broiled Coconut Frosting -- also known as a Lazy Daisy Cake -- is a super moist vanilla cake covered in a crunchy, toasted coconut topping. It's one of my favorite cakes of all time! Includes a step by step recipe video.

2cupsall purpose flour250g
1cupmilkI use 1%
1 3/4cupsweetenedshredded coconut
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.
