While growing up I had several fun memories from past summers. One of these memories would be summer cookouts. . One of things that most defines a summer cookout for me is the dessert we would almost always have: lazy daisy cake. If you are unfamiliar with lazy daisy cake, then read on!
You will need the following ingredients:
Start out by scalding the milk. What is scalding the milk, you ask? Scalding the milk is basically heating it up hot enough to the point where you are just shy or scorching it. Once you've done that, add the butter and stir it until it is melted. Put the milk and butter aside for a few minutes, Beat the eggs separately, and once the eggs are beaten well, add the sugar gradually, while continuing to beat the mixture. Once the sugar is mixed in, add the vanilla. Now you need to add the dry ingredients and beat the batter again. Add the hot milk and butter combination and beat for a full five minutes. Pour the batter in a large greased baking pan. Bake the batter in an oven preheated to 375 degrees for eighteen to twenty minutes.
While the cake is baking, make this topping. Here are the ingredients for the topping:
This topping is so incredibly easy to make. All you have to do is heat all of the ingredients together while stirring. Heat them until all of the ingredients are melted. When the cake is finished baking and is cooled, spread the topping on top of the cake, and then put the cake with the topping under a broiler and watch carefully until the topping on top is caramelized.
This cake is great for picnics (and, of course, cookouts!) and the recipe can also be easily split in half if need be. If you are ever in need of a quick cake that is always a crowd pleaser, then this is the cake for you!
