DIRECTIONS

  • Bake cake according to package directions. I use 2 round pans to layer it.
  • Cut the butter into pieces & set aside.
  • In a saucepan, stir the flour and sugar over medium heat for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add the butter pieces & pour in the milk. Stir well.
  • Reduce heat to medium low (usually 3 or 4 on my stove) & allow to come to a rolling boil. Remember to stir every few seconds or it will stick!
  • Stir in the coconut & pecans.
  • Mix well & remove from the heat.
  • Allow to cool for only a minute or so before placing on the cake.
