This is a very good cake. I found it to be a little bit lighter than a pound cake but that's a good thing. It was hard to wait for it to cool. The only things I would change are 1. include some sort of topping ( frosting or maybe a coconut rum infused glaze ) and I would add more coconut BUT I am a coconut junkie and always add more than any recipe calls for. This is a keeper!
Wonderful flavour! Fast and easy to put together. The almond extract is perfect in this cake. Mine turned out like a pound cake....yum! Will definately be making this again. Looking forward to having a piece with a cup of tea. Thank you for sharing your mother's recipe! Made for Spring PAC 2010.
Very tasty and easy to make but mine looks nothing like the picture and I don't know why.
