Broiled Frosting

Sometimes what you want isn't a thickly frosted super sweet cake but something a little lighter yet still sweet.  This Broiled Frosting is the answer.  It's a great topper for a coffee cake or muffins, too, when you want that added little something.

Broiled Frosting 1/4 cup softened butter
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup finely chopped nuts
1 cup flaked coconut
3 tbsps milk
Mix the butter, brown sugar and nuts and coconut thoroughly.  Add milk to moisten.  Spread over cake (makes enough for 9 X 13 sheet cake).  Set oven control to broil or 550F.  Place cake five inches from heat source and broile about 3 minutes until bubbly and slightly golden. Watch carefully, this frosting will burn quickly.  I half it with success.
May skip coconut and increase nuts to 1 cup, or substitute 1/2 cup cereal flakes.
