Southern Lane Filling
From Sonja

My mother used this filling to frost her German Chocolate Cake.  When my mother-in-law was feeling especially swanky, she sometimes used this filling to top her Tennessee Jam Cake.  I like this filling because it is so easy to make. I have also used it on chocolate and devils food cakes.  I split the layers and spread the lane filling between the layers, then frost the entire cake with 7-minute frosting.

Southern Lane Filling

5 egg yolks
1 cup chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup butter (no substitution)
1 cup flaked coconut
1 cup raisins
1 cup sugar
pinch of salt

Beat yolks and sugar together.  Turn into heavy saucepan.  Add 1 cup butter, pinch of salt, and 1 cup raisins.  Bring just to the boil.  Cook, stirring constantly over medium heat until filling is thick, about 1 to 3 minutes.  Stir in the coconut, nuts, and vanilla.  Spread immediately onto cake.
