Lazy Daisy Cake Recipe

Lazy Daisy Cake

At high school I lived for a year in the hostel. And that meant eating hostel food. Generally high school hostels are not renowned for putting out food that makes you jump with excitement. If you lived in a hostel, you will know what I am talking about. But I didn't dislike the food as much as other students. Maybe because I only lived for one year? Or its my taste buds.

Surely there were some dishes that even I could not stand. One that instantly comes to mind is beef olives. But there are a few dishes that I still have fond memories of. One of them was a simple plain cake with a crunchy coconut topping. I absolutely loved it. It was served in a bowl with a generous amount of custard.

I decided to search for this cake and came across lazy daisy cake, which matched the description. I don’t know where the name comes from. Perhaps a lazy lady called Daisy came up with the recipe. Irrespective of the interesting name, the cake is absolutely delicious.

My only criticism of the recipe is the level of sweetness. I used about a third less sugar than suggested by the recipe, and it was still really sweet. Next time I will use even less sugar.

Adopted from King Arthur Flour

2 large eggs
¾ cup sugar (original recipe suggests 1 cup)
1 cup Flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup milk
1½ tablespoons butter

¼ cup unsalted butter
¼ cup brown sugar (original recipe suggests ½ cup + 2 tablespoons)
¼ cup milk
1 cup flaked coconut

1.     In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs till frothy, then add the sugar, beating at high speed until mixture is thick and lemon-colored. Stir in the flour, baking powder and salt.
2.   In a saucepan, heat the milk and butter together to boiling. Add to ingredients in bowl, beating to combine.
3.      Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake at 175°C/350°F for 30 minutes, until the top springs back when lightly touched with your finger, and the edges begin to pull away from the pan. Remove from oven and place on a rack to cool for 10 minutes or so.
4.      To make the topping: Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the brown sugar, milk and coconut, stirring to combine. Pour the topping over the warm cake, and place under a broiler for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown and bubbling.

  1. I think you have already mentioned beef with olives... It actually sounds very good, but I believe it's easy to spoil too. I was lucky to have avoided school/university group food throughout all my life, but I've heard it's rarely good, so you were lucky indeed!
    The cake looks delicious and I like the name too. Very cute :-)

    1. You have good memory. Yes I did mention it. When you read about it, it sounds great. But I don't know what the school did but it smelt quite unpleasant each time, and didn't taste any better. I think that was the most hated food.

  2. So fun to recreate recipes from youth we liked (and avoid the ones we hated) Anything coconut is good glad you made it..minus more sugar.

    1. Its amazing that certain food memories remain for a long time...
