  1. Ingredients:
    • 4 large eggs
    • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1/2 cup milk
    • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
    • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1 pinch of salt
    Topping:
    • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
    • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
    • 1/2 cup milk
    • 2 cups shredded coconut
    Directions:
    1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
    2. Grease and flour a 9×13 inch baking pan.
    3. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract until light and fluffy.
    4. In a small saucepan, heat the milk and butter until the butter is melted. Set aside to cool slightly.
    5. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
    6. Gradually add the flour mixture to the egg mixture, alternating with the milk mixture, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Mix until just combined.
    7. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and smooth the top.
    8. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
    9. While the cake is baking, prepare the topping: In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the brown sugar and milk, and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
    10. Remove from heat and stir in the shredded coconut.
    11. When the cake is done, remove it from the oven and spread the topping evenly over the hot cake.
    12. Return the cake to the oven and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until the topping is golden and bubbling.
    13. Let the cake cool in the pan before serving.
