Recipe by Vino Girl

Another incredible cake from Southern Living (December 2004). Top the cooled cake with sifted powdered sugar or a simple frosting glaze, and maybe a little extra coconut and pecans.

Made this for my mother in law who loves coconut and pound cake. I added a maple glaze. The whole family loved it, kids, teens, and adults
