and flour them. Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt together. In a
separate bowl, cream the sugar and butter, then add the eggs and vanilla

the mixture to a full boil, and boil 4-5 minutes. Remove from the heat, and
spread on the cake while both the cake and icing are still warm. Makes a
very moist coconut cake, serving 10-12.
