I cheat by baking the cake from a box, but nobody will ever know it's not homemade when you use this recipe. I usually double this recipe for a 9" cake. My husband's very favorite.
- Cook the condensed milk, egg yolks and butter for about 10 minutes over medium heat in a 2 qt heavy saucepan, stirring constantly until bubbly.
- Remove from heat and stir in the coconut, pecans, and vanilla.
- Allow to cool for about 15 minutes before spreading on cake.
