1 1/2 biscuit baking mix
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/2 cup cold water*
2 tablespoons butter-flavored shortening
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Broiled Topping, recipe follows
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray an 8-inch square pan with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
In a large mixer bowl, blend all ingredients (except topping) using an electric mixer on low speed for less than a minute to blend, scraping bowl often. Beat on medium speed 3 to 4 minutes.
Pour batter into pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes or until cake top springs back when lightly touched with fingers. While cake is still warm, spread top with the broiled topping.
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
2 tablespoons light cream
1/2 cup coconut
1/4 cup chopped pecans
Combine the topping ingredients in a small saucepan and heat to melt butter and brown sugar. Set oven to broil. Spread the topping over the cake and broil 3 inches from the heat 3 minutes or until the topping is browned. Watch carefully or topping will burn!
