Broiled Nut Icing

This was amazing.  It is a simple nutty/caramely topping that would go great on any dense cake.  It’s pictured on oatmeal cake, but a nice spice or carrot cake would be delicious with it also.
Broiled Nut Topping
1/4 cup butter
2 T. milk 
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
In a medium saucepan combine butter and milk.  Stir over medium heat until the butter melts.  Add the brown sugar and stir until the sugar dissolves.  Remove from hear and stir in nuts.  Pour sugar mixture over warm cake.  Broil about 5 inches from the heating element for 2 to 3 minutes or until the topping is bubble and golden.  Cool before serving.
This makes the perfect amount for a 9 inch round cake or a 9×9 square.  If using a 9×13 cake double the recipe.  If you took the cake out of the pan before you put the topping on, be sure to place the cake on a baking sheet before topping and broiling.
