Regina Roggasch's Lazy Daisy Frosting

3 tablespoons butter
5 tablespoons cream or milk
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup coconut
1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Place all ingredients in small mixing bowl and mix well. Drop by spoonfuls over top of hot or cooled cake and spread gently. Place low under broiler and broil slowly until bubbly and lightly browned. Serve warm or cold. Makes enough for an 8x8" cake pan; double the recipe for a 9x13" cake pan.

Regina Roggasch contributed this recipe to the Jolly Neighbors Extension Club of Rose, Nebraska, for a hand-written cookbook that they made during the early 1960's. I have expanded the directions a little because all the recipes were greatly condensed to fit on one side of a 3x5" recipe card. Miss Roggasch was my first teacher at Duff Valley District 4. We moved to Rose near the end of my first grade year, so I only had her for a month or so.

Another great Easy Recipe

Love At Home

There is beauty all around
When there's love at home.
There is joy in every sound
When there's love at home.

Roses bloom beneath our feet,
All the earth is a garden sweet,
Making life a bliss complete,
When there's love at home.

-- John Hugh McNaughton (1829-1891)
