This cake is truly excellent. Be sure to beat the sugar/butter for about 7 minutes to ensure enough air is incorporated. Also, I use dessicated coconut (I buy it online) and it makes a WONDERFUL improvement - none of that "chew chew chew" feeling with the supermarket kind. Has a stronger coconut taste, and lends a firmness that makes this wonderful cake even better!

A lot of reviewers said was a tad dry, and I agree.

I've made this recipe twice now for company and have had only rave reviews! However, I always end up having to bake it for at 2 hours. ALso, I thought it was just a bit too sweet so the second time I made it I used a half cup less sugar and it tasted wonderful.

This is a fabulous cake! I followed other reviewers' suggestions and it turned out wonderfully. I baked it as a birthday cake, and got tons of compliments. I doubled the amount of coconut extract, reduced the sugar to 2 cups, and pulsed the coconut in the food processor just briefly. I also used Egg Beaters equivalent to 4 of the eggs. Delicious!!

OMG! This pound cake is awesome! If you love coconut this cake is for you. I followed the recipe exactly and used my Kitchen Aid stand mixer to beat everything so it was nice and fluffy. I also let everything get to room temperature before mixing. It baked up beautifully in exactly 1 hour and 20 minutes and the smell in the house was nothing less than heavenly. Make no mistake, this cake is rich and dense so it's not something you'd make on a regular basis but it definitely fits the bill for special occasions. I served it with fresh strawberries, whipped cream and toasted coconut - YUM!

Great recipe. Just the right amount of coconut flavor. Very moist and great texture. The key is to use real butter and to cream the butter, cream cheese, and sugar until they are truly light and fluffy. I halved the recipe and baked in a loaf pan for 1 hr, 20 mins. Came out great!

I am a die hard coconut fan and this is the most amazing cake i've ever made! My mom and i couldn't wait for it to leave the oven and i was told that i could no longer make that cake in the house....because we'd eat it all!! It has even now been added to the dessert menu at my restaurant as a strawberry shortcake and before the words are even out of my mouth the cake is gone. thank you so much for sharing this recipe!

This was so easy to make and turned out wonderfully. I used a bundt pan and ended up baking it 10 minutes longer than the recipe says. This is an excellent cake to make for a picnic and is delicious served with fruit.
