    chef_cmontes's Note:

    I was looking online for a coconut pound cake that used coconut milk and came across one that was similar to the one that I wanted. However, I made quite a few changes and I believe that it has been perfected :-) This pound cake has a wonderfully rich coconut flavor b/c it uses coconut milk. The coconut milk and coconut are both un-sweetened, so you may add a little more sugar if you'd like, but this recipe is great even if you don't have a "sweet tooth". ADDITIONAL NOTES: After readin some of the reviews, I tried this same recipe and added a "Brown suger Toasted Coconut Glaze". It makes it even better. See below

      I came searching for this recipe due to another recipe I tried but was a disaster! I wanted to make a coconut cranberry trifle. The recipe for the cake part was horrible! so I found this one and it was wonderful! I did change out the vanilla extract for coconut extract to give the pound cake a more coconuty taste. Layering theses chunks of pound cake with a home made coconut pudding/custard and a from scratch cranberry sauce was fantastic with the dessert Ice wine I served, try it with Jana Angel Eis by Scott Harvey.

      I found this recipe to be a very good one. I used this pound cake for stawberry shortcake. It was great! I used the low fat coconut milk, and I did add a cup of coconut. Plus I added coconut flour 1/2 c. It was very very good! This is a recipe to be made often!!! Thank you very much for sharing it with us! YUM!

      I chose this recipe because I had a can of coconut milk that almost at it's end date and I didn't want to waste glad I found this recipe. FABULOUS! If you can resist it, it's even better after a couple days! So good in fact I plan on making a bunch of them tomorrow for Christmas gifts for coworkers. If you have trouble finding the unsweetened coconut check the organic section of your grocery. I happened to have some on hand and wouldn't consider using the sweetened. As written the recipe is slightly sweet and perfect - the sweetened coconut would take it over the edge. The topping makes it just perfect.
