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!
The taste was good, but I'll take another reviewer's advice and use coconut extract next time to enhance the coconut flavor. I needed to bake it about 15 minutes more than suggested. (Wonder if I could use coconut oil for some of the butter? Hmmmm)
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 it..so 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.
Very easy to follow instructions and a great result - delicious, moist and dense coconut cake. I didn't make the syrup this time, just enjoyed it with a nice cuppa tea.
The cake came out good. Mosit, just not coconuty enough for me.
I made 2 of these cakes over the weekend. One we kept, and the other we sent to someone. We loved ours. I served it with strawberries, and cream. Thanks so much for posting. It was a great way to use the coconut milk I had left over.
I will make this pound cake again. I followed the instructions exactly. I froze the cake for 2 weeks, defrosted it on the counter and it was so moist and delicious. Thanks for a really great recipe.
Excellent! Used a little bit less sugar/personal preference/. Just perfect balanced taste. I like it with cup of milk or coffee. I just have to be careful not to eat whole loaf(-:.
