Preheat oven to 350 degrees and butter or spray a 9 x 13 glass dish.
Cream the butter, sugar and eggs in a bowl.
Add remaining ingredients and blend well.
Pour into glass dish and bake for 40-50 minutes.
Edges should have a nice light brown color while the middle is a nice cream color. Eat hot or cold.
(Optional) I like to add the shredded coconut to the batter. For the last 15 minutes of baking, I also like to take some of the shredded coconut and sprinkle it to the top of the cake to toast the coconut. Very delicious!
