    Coconut Pound Cake

    Recipe Link:

    List of Ingredients

    6 eggs
    1 cup of butter (2 sticks)
    1/2 cup of solid shortening (Crisco)
    3 cups of sugar
    3 cups of "plain" flour, sifted
    1/2 tsp. baking powder
    1 cup of evaporated milk
    6 oz. fresh grated coconut OR frozen coconut
    1 Tbs. coconut extract


    Combine and cream well the butter, Crisco and sugar. Add one egg at a time and beat well until all 6 are added. Add milk and flour alternately until thoroughly mixed. Add baking power and beat well. Add coconut and extract and beat well.

    Heavily grease the inside of a tube pan. Pour batter in and place in a COLD oven -- turn heat to 350 degrees and bake 1 1/2 hours or until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean (Grandmama used a stick of spaghetti!). Check the cake after 1 hour -- if the top is brown, cover with tin foil to prevent burning.
