The flavor of coconut can be pared with any number of cake flavors, so your broiled coconut topping will go well with chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, cherry, lemon, or any other cake flavor you can imagine.
This broiled coconut topping recipe is best used as a topping only, because, for the best flavor, the topping needs to be broiled to gain that slightly nutty texture and flavor.
