This cake is excellent with coffee, a nice treat for Sunday morning breakfast.
Mix together the butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla, and coconut until well blended. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt, add this to the first mixture alternately with the milk, and beat until smooth. Pour into a greased 8-inch square pan.
Mix topping ingredients all together and spread over the batter. Bake at 375 degrees F for 30 minutes.
