This is a caramel nut coconut icing that you toast under the broiler. Excellent on oatmeal cake!

i grew up with this icing and was so excited to find it here! my mom always put this on top of date cake. it actually seal in the moisture of the cake and creates a nice crunchy topping. make sure you brown it till it's good and golden, otherwise it won't caramelize and just ends up gooey. i just put it on an applesauce cake and it's terrific. can be made with either white or brown sugar and you can use milk instead of cream.

I slightly changed this recipe; deleting the nuts; substituting milk for the cream and adding a tsp of vanilla. I use this on a standard white 'scratch' cake and everyone gobbles it up.......the cake doesn't last 2 days with this topping!!
