Broiled Coconut Frosting

This is a wonderful cake topping, and very easy to make. It works perfectly on a sheet cake of any size.

It can turn a simple breakfast bread/cake into a dinner dessert in minutes.

I think you can also boil this up in a sauce pan and let it cool and then spread it.

It would be similar to the frosting for a German Chocolate cake.

So enjoy. It’s versatile enough to use on many different cake bases.



  • 1/3 c melted butter
  • 1/2 brown sugar
  • 3/4 c sweetened coconut
  • 3 tbsp cream
  • 1/2 c chopped nuts (any kind that you like)


  1. Mix everything together, spread on the cake.
  2. Place it under the broiler, and watch carefully.
  3. Remove when it starts to bubble. Again, watch so it doesn’t burn.

Serves: about 1 1/2 – 2 cups

Note: consider lemon, orange zest depending on your cake base.
