  "This date and nut cake always included a broiled topping. Lazy Daisy
  was a plain cake with the same topping. ... Queen Elizabeth cakes
  have appeared in cook books coast to coast for many years. Some claim
  that the recipe was a favorite of the Queen Mother and given to
  worthy groups as a fund raiser during World War II. One from Quebec's
  Eastern Townships includes the footnote that says that, "This is not
  to be passed on but must be sold for charitable purposes for 15 cents.
    In a reply to our query about the name of this recipe, the Queen
  Mother's Lady-in-Waiting writes; "I fear I have to tell you that,
  although we have known about this recipe for many years, it did not
  originate from either Buckingham Palace or Clarence House...However
  as Her Majesty always made it a rule, due to the number of requests
  received, never to give "favorite recipes", I fear that I have to
  tell you that you that should you wish to include this recipe in any
  cookbook, it should only be called a 'date and walnut cake' with no
  reference to the Queen Mother."
  
  Pour water over dates and soda; let stand until lukewarm. In bowl,
  cream butter with sugar; beat in egg and vanilla. Mix together flour,
  baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with date
  mixture. Spread in a greased and floured 9 inch square cake pan. Bake
  in 350F oven for 40 minutes or until tester comes out clean.
  
  Broiled Topping: In a small heavy saucepan, combine butter, packed
  brown sugar, light cream and coconut (half nuts if desired). Bring to
  a boil, stirring; boil gently for 1 minute. Spread over warm baked
  cake; broil until bubbly and lightly browned, watching carefully.
