While cake is baking, mix the butter or margarine, 1 cup sugar, and 1/2 cup of canned milk in a pot on the stove. While stirring let mixture come to a rolling boil for 4 minutes. Cool 5 minutes. Add nuts, coconut and vanilla. Stir and pour on cake while both are hot.
My Grandmother use to make this cake, I started making it 43 years ago.

You have to stir the topping constantly while it is boiling or it will boil over on to the stove. I hope everyone enjoys this cake as much as we do, leave it in the pan.
