I shared last week that I was grateful for another birthday. This week, I want to give you my grandmother’s recipe for the coconut-pecan frosting on the cake that my husband made for my sister and I this year. The cake was wonderful!
1 c. evaporated milk
1 c. sugar
3 egg yolks, slightly beaten
¼ lb. of butter or margarine
1 tsp. vanilla
1- 1/3 cups coconut
1 c. chopped pecans
Combine milk, sugar, egg yolks, butter or margarine, and vanilla in a saucepan. Boil over medium heat stirring constantly until mixture thickens, about 12 minutes. Remove from heat. Add coconut and pecans and beat until cool and of spreading consistency.
You will love this great Menu Plan Monday frosting!!
