4 eggs, well beaten
2 c sugar
2 c cake flour
1 c milk
2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp butter

3 T melted butter
6 heaping T brown sugar
6 T cream
1 can cocoanut
Mix all together. Spread on hot cake. Place under broiler until a delicate brown. Watch closely for it scorches easily.

This recipe is dated September 1941. Mom and Dad did not have electricity in the farm home until 1944 or 45. I remember this cake being served occasionally because we all liked it, but I don't know how the topping was broiled in a wood cooking stove. She may have collected it in 1941 knowing she would someday have an electric stove.
