  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10 inch tube pan.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together 2 cups sugar and the butter. Fold in the eggs one at a time, fully incorporating each one before adding another.
  3. In separate bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, milk, flaked coconut, and 1 teaspoon coconut extract. Beat into the creamed mixture. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  4. Bake 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for just a few minutes, then place on cake platter.
  5. To make the glaze, mix together in a small saucepan 1 cup sugar, water, 1 teaspoon coconut extract, and walnuts. Boil for 1 minute, and pour over still warm cake.

this cake did not turn out good for me. Don't know what went wrong but the cake had a hard crust on the outside and was not moist.

Delicious coconut cake. It has just the right amount of sweetness and it's moist.

This was delicious. I left out the nuts and the glaze was still wonderful. Great with fruit topping.
