Topping: 1 cup of Sugar 1 Stick of Butter or Margarine 1 small can of evaporated milk 1 can of coconut Combine ingredients in a pot except the coconut Cook over medium heat for 10 minutes Add in the coconut and pour over top of cake while it's hot. Enjoy the easy recipe my friends.

You're welcome my friend. The first responder posted a few more versions of this cake and that seems to be a bit more work involved than the recipe I posted.
