This is a lovely, decadent sauce that can be used to top any Amish Friendship Bread of your choice, but we love it spooned warm over our Old-Fashioned Fruit Cocktail Amish Friendship Bread Cake. If you have extra, leftovers can go on a scoop of vanilla ice cream, too!

The recipe is super easy. Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil for one minute. Remove the saucepan from the heat and allow to cool for five minutes.
Spoon the sauce directly over a cake, put it on the side, or poke holes in the cake and drench the cake with this amazing sauce.
I was gifting the bread to a friend and put some extra Coconut-Pecan Sauce in a cup, and he said he finished it with a spoon! Yup, it’s that good!
- 4 tablespoons butter unsalted
- 1 cup coconut flakes sweetened
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup evaporated milk
- 1 cup chopped pecans
In a small saucepan, combine all ingredients, stirring until well combined.
Bring mixture to a boil for one minute, then remove saucepan from heat.
Allow to cool for five minutes, and then spoon over warm cake. If desired, poke holes in the cake first.
