Coconut Pound Cake Recipe Scratch




coconut pound cake recipe scratchI have a perfectly good reason for taking the time to bake this Coconut Pound Cake Recipe (scratch!) Vacation for me this year was a week House-Sitting for my Parents, while they took my kids on a trip.

Sound Odd?

Think about it…. Sleeping as late as I wanted, eating what I wanted, eating when I wanted, no Spongebob (unless I was in the mood for Spongebob)

(and I’m generally not).

But after a few days of utter bliss… the need to bake kicked in. Realizing that there is danger to my current bathing suit size if I baked something and ATE it all myself, I set out to bake something that would keep until my people to returned (and, perhaps would even improve with the wait).

The Coconut Pound Cake Recipe Scratch is perfect. It’s easy to put together, smells like a slice of heaven (if heaven smells of coconut) in the oven, and you can store or freeze it for later. PLUS… it’s pretty sturdy… which makes it great for carrying some onto an airplane in a child’s backpack. (Yes, we did…. everyone else got peanuts… we had cake… ) (grin)

Serve this up on it’s own, or with some fruit. The cake has a buttery crumb with sweet coconut flavor. Instead of frosting, you pour a coconut glaze over the cake while it’s still warm. MMMMMMMMmmmm. When the cake cools, the glaze seeps into the cake a bit. Double mmmmmmm.

I use Cream of Coconut, the stuff that is used to make Pina Coloadas. It’s generally found in the Adult Beverages Section of the grocery store.
Now… If you live in a world where there is no such thing, you have 2 choices…
1) order it from Amazon, or
2) combine a teaspoon of Coconut Extract with 1 Cup of Whole Milk.
(Go with number 1, the taste is WAY better…. and then you can make Pina Coloadas or Smoothies with the rest of it This Coconut Pound Cake Recipe comes together simply without too many fancy ingredients.)

As usual, I’ve included a mess of step-by-step photos, so you can bake this cake yourself.

Enjoy!

  1. Oh that sounds so good! I made a pound cake yesterday, using the same basic recipe, but added apples with cinnamon and brown sugar in the middle of the cake batter. Needed to bake it for 10 more minutes, but it came out wonderful too. Moist and delicious. I will have to try your version soon.
