This is a recipe for a cake that my Mom used to make a lot. It is light and nice for a warm summer day. It's easy and delicious. If you like sponge cake and coconut, you will really like this cake. Sorry, but I do not have a picture. Next time I make it I will take one.

How to Make Lazy Summer Sponge Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Cake:
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 13x9 inch pan. Set aside.
    Add butter to scalded milk; set aside. Combine eggs, sugar and vanilla. Beat for 1 1/2 minutes at high speed until thick and lemon colored. In separate bowl, combine dry ingredients. Add to egg mixture. Beat 1 minute at low speed. Add milk mixture; beat for 1 minute. Be sure to use a spatula and make sure mixtures are incorporated as the egg-flour mixture is very thick and will be at the bottom of the bowl. Pour into prepared pan. Spread evenly. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Cool slightly. Prepare topping while cake is baking.
  2. Topping:
    Combine heavy cream, (do not use milk-it will curdle) and brown sugar in small pan. Bring to boil over medium heat and cook for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in coconut and nuts. Spread mixture over cake.
