Holiday Sweets

Coconut Pound Cake

Look at my 'Holiday Cake'!  I do not like coconut but I love coconut cookies and  coconut cake if the coconut is incorporated into the batter.  Delish!  I found this great recipe for a coconut pound cake at allrecipes.com.  It was quick and easy and DH LOVED it!  We almost ate the entire cake within one week.  Needless to say I will  only bake this one for special occasions and only when we are having company over so that we can share the calories with them.

Here is the recipe if you are interested in baking one:

Coconut Pound Cake
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1  1/3  cup flaked cocunut
  • 1 teaspoon coconut extract
 Glaze:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon coconut extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.  Grease and flour a 10-inch tube pan (I used my Pampered Chef fluted cake pan.  Check out yesterday's post for stoneware seasoning if you need to season yours).
  2. In a large bowl, cream together 2 cups sugar and the butter.  Fold in the eggs one at a time, fully incorporating each one before adding another.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, milk, flaked cocunut, and 1 teaspoon coconut extract.  Beat into the creamed mixture.  Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  4. Bake 1 hour, then cool on a wire rack for just a few minutes, then place on cake platter.

Glaze:  Mix together 1 cup sugar, water, 1 teaspoon coconut extract and walnuts.  Boil for 1 minute, then pour over warm cake.
