      This is the best coconut pound cake recipe I've made thus far! The coconut extract is just what the recipe needs to give it the coconut flavor; not just the coconut texture with a bit of flavor. I absolutely loved the idea of the syrup on the cake rather than a glaze. At first I thought it would make the cake very sweet but the syrup on the cake is actually less sweet than a glaze. The syrup adds to the moistness of the cake and provides a different twist from a traditional glaze. I used butter rather than oleo just because I prefer to bake with butter and did not use the rum extract because I didn't have any on hand(also not a big rum fan so I'm not sure if I'd like it). The one thing I needed was a pastry brush to brush on the glaze. It was a little difficult trying to drizzle it to get the same effect as a brush. The recipe doesn't call for it but, I'm probably going to keep the cake in the refrigerator as the moistness may cause the cake to mold quickly. This recipe is definitely a keeper!

      Delicious!!! I used real butter (unsalted) and this cake came out moist, buttery, and had just the right amount of coconut flavoring! The cake was a big hit with my family, so I will be making it again soon! Thanks for great recipe!
