Excellent very rich pound cake which was the perfect ending to a very spicy meal. I cooked this in a loaf pan at 350-degrees F for about 1hour and 20 minutes (but my oven cooks slow). Next time I will make it in a tube pan and slice the cake in very thin slices. Although we loved this pound cake my conversions may have been off a bit--I used two sticks of butter (1 cup) and only 7 oz of coconut when I made this desert (the remainder of the ingredients I used were the same as written in the recipe). Thanks for posting this easy-to-make desert recipe.
