TO MAKE THE CAKE

  • Bake for 28-30 minutes or until the cake bounces back when you touch the center.

TO MAKE THE TOPPING

  • In a small bowl, mix together the softened butter, sugar, coconut and orange juice.
  • Spread the coconut mixture on the hot cake immediately after it comes out of the oven.
  • Set the oven to a low broil and place the cake on the highest oven rack. Broil for 3-5 minutes, watching the cake very closely so that it does not burn. It will cook quickly so don’t leave it for long and keep checking it.
  • When the topping is bubbly, remove the cake from the oven.
  • Allow the cake to cool. Serve plain or with whipped cream.
  • Store any leftovers in an airtight container.
