Try making this Yum Yum Cake the next time you have a family gathering for a sweet and decadent dessert that is sure to have rave reviews. A delicious cake topped with homemade icing that includes coconut and pecans.
Add the cake batter to the prepared baking dish and spread it into an even single layer. Place into the oven to bake for 40 to 45 minutes, until a cake tester (toothpick) comes out with little to no crumbs.
While the cake is cooling, begin preparing the icing. In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, add the ½ cup (1 stick) butter and allow it to melt, stirring constantly. Add the 1 cup sugar and whisk to combine.
Pour the icing in an even layer over the top of the cake in the pan. It is perfectly fine if the cake is still warm. Allow the cake time to cool and set for about 5 to 10 minutes before cutting to serve.
