This is a little gem of a dessert!

It is a very vintage little recipe from
Mother's Home and Garden cookbook
and has always been a family favorite!

1 1/2 t. vanilla

Place the butter in a mixing bowl
and allow to come to room temperature.
Add all dry ingredients.
Stir to combine.
Add egg and half of the milk,
Beat at medium speed for 2 minutes.
Add the rest of the milk
and
continue to beat 2 additional minutes.
Bake in a greased 9" x 9" x 2" baking dish.
Bake at 350 degrees F. for 25-30 minutes.
Top with Broiled Coconut Topper.

  2. Good Morning Sweet Friend, Now this looks like a great cake when time is running less and you need something delicious. It looks like something very time consuming but sounds easy to whip up. Thank you for sharing the recipe. I bet you could even tint the coconut in red and green for this season. Have a wonderful week.
    Hugs
