I have always been a fan of this cake since College. My best friend and I used to make this in our apartment. We would invite other friends over and have one of those girls night. This was always the highlight of the night. Aside from its delicious taste and amazing aroma, it is very simple to make as well. You just need to follow these steps that I have provided and you are good to go! Enjoy this Coconut Cream Pound Cake with your friends. I am 100 percent sure that they would love it too! By the way, be very generous with the coconut. You can add more than 2 cups if you want. Besides the main ingredient of this is the coconut. Give it a try. Enjoy!
