I thought this is a great way to use up the half a can of coconut milk that is left over from other recipes (only uses one cup of coconut milk). Recipe source: local newspaper

What a wonderful coconut pound cake! It is not overpowering with coconut, but you can certainly taste it. I had light coconut milk, so that might have made a difference in the strenght of the flavor. My entire family thought it was delicious. It baked up beautifully, golden on the outside and dense, yet tender on the inside. Any time I have left over coconut milk I will make this cake. If I only have 1/2 cup, I will half the recipe and make it in a loaf pan. Thanks so much for a glorious dessert! Made for ZWT3.
