Glazed Coconut Pound Cake

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
YIELD: 1 Cake




  • Preheat oven to 325°F.
  • Cream sugar and Crisco.
  • Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each.
  • Add Flavoring.
  • Sift dry ingredients together and add alternating with the milk--begin and end with the flour.
  • Bake in greased and floured tube pan for 1 hour and 20 minutes. You might want to start checking on this after 1 hour - sometimes my cake is finished about then.
  • When cake is almost finished, start making the glaze.
  • To make the Glaze: Put all ingredients for the glaze in pot and cook over medium heat.
  • Let mixture boil for 5 minutes. It will bubble so you will need to watch it carefully so it won't boil over onto your stove - trust me, you don't want that to happen.
  • When removed from the oven, pour glaze over the cake while it is still in the pan and let sit at least 8 hours or overnight.
  • To remove from the pan, place the cake in the oven at 250°F for 5 minutes or long enough to loosen to the sugar glaze surrounding the cake.
  • The cake should slide out of the tube pan easily - if it does not, put it back into the oven for a few more minutes and then try again.
