Walnut Frosting

This is the frosting I usually make for my no-egg chocolate cake.

Walnut Frosting

2 cups evaporated milk
2 cups sugar
6 egg yolks- slightly beaten
2 cubes butter- softened
dash salt

Heat over low heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Boil until it thickens and slightly changes color.Once it starts boiling, I usually stir approx. 10 more minutes. Remove from heat. Let cool slightly. Then stir in:

2 2/3 cups coconut flakes
2 cups chopped walnuts
2 tsp. vanilla

*This will be slightly runnier than regular frosting.

I think this frosting sounds so yummy. Good thing you don't have to use any eggs for the cake! I thought that was funny...6 eggs! That's probably what makes it taste so good!
