Do you love coconut? Would you like to make The Best Coconut Pound Cake? This has been a family favorite pound cake for over 30 years and one of my most requested recipes. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!!! I tried to capture its moistness and goodness in the photo!!! BTW I seem to enjoy taking photo’s of food these days…. I have a lot to learn!!!
Coconut Pound Cake
1 c. Crisco oil
2 c. sugar
1 c. buttermilk
2 c. self rising flour
1 t. coconut extract
1 c. bakers coconut
Mix oil, sugar, eggs one at a time beating after each.
Add buttermilk, flour, coconut and extract
Bake in a bunt pan.
Bake 350 for 50-60 min in greased and floured pan
Start checking at 45 min. with toothpick.
If too done it drys out.
1 c. water
1 c. sugar
½ t. coconut extract or coconut flavor
Boil for 1 minute.
When the cake comes out of the oven poke it with a sharp knife all over the top while it is still in the pan, pour hot glaze over the top ( I use a ¼ cup and gradually add glaze all over to make sure I cover all top parts of the cake)
While still in pan. Let sit for at least ½ hour. Turn out cake. I usually take a knife and go all around the edges to make sure it will come out. (If you don’t grease and flour it well, it will stick)
Store cake in frig. My favorite way to serve the cake is after it has been in the frig 24 hours and cold!!
