    No doubt, the best pound cake I have ever eaten. My mother used to make a coconut layer cake for Christmas every year which the whole family enjoyed, but I really prefer this recipe. I am 77 yrs old, believe me, I have tasted a lot of cakes. Thanks for sharing.

    Saturday, Oct 12th was my 56th birthday, and while it was a lovely day, I missed having a birthday cake. Yesterday, I decided to make myself one and stumbled on this recipe after deciding I wanted a coconut cake.

    Something has to be phenomenal for me to leave a review so, can I just say that this was the most delicious and tender and moist cake I have EVER made! EVER! I didn’t
    make the glaze, nor any glaze, as I felt it would be sweet enough on its own, and I’m not a fan of frosting/glaze
    anyway. Trust me when I say it doesn’t need it! The only
    thing that might have made it better (if even possible)
    would have been a dollop of fresh whipped cream and
    some berries. Also, the grocery store only had ”imitation coconut flavoring”, and not “extract”, so I’m very excited to try it again with the real stuff!

    I will take it to work tomorrow as I fear that if it’s not out of my house I will eat the entire cake!!

    This recipe is going to be kept VERY handy for any event that I may need to bring a dish to…. I CANNOT WAIT to make it for the holidays! Thank you for sharing such a phenomenal recipe! I LOVE IT!
