This is my Grandmothers recipe. This frosting recipe won at the Los Angeles Fair. It is so good that you can use the box German Chocolate Cake Mix for the cake and then use the recipe for the frosting. I cannot wait until Beau's and my dad's birthday to eat this delicious cake.
1 (12 oz.) can evaporated milk
1 1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter
4 egg yolk, slightly beaten
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
7 oz. flaked coconut
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans
Mix milk, sugar, butter, egg yolks, and vanilla in a large sauce pan. Cook and stir on medium heat for about 12 minutes or until thickened and golden brown. Remove from heat and stir in coconut and pecans. Cool to room temerature and of spreading consistency.
By the way...it is Beau's birthday. He gets two cakes because his mom is throwing him a large party. Stay tuned for the Key Lime Pie recipe...
