The unusual feature of this recipe is that the coconut mixture forms a soft topping when baked and eliminates the need for icing.

1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

Mix the sugar, warm milk and butter or margarine together. Add the egg yolks, then the dry ingredients and beat until light. Put in a well-greased 9-inch square pan, spread with Topping (see below), and bake 30 to 35 minutes in a 350 degrees F oven.

Topping

Ingredients
