Coconut Pound Cake

This is a marvellous coconut cake! One of my favorite blogs is "The Goddess's Kitchen," written by a blogger in the U.K. Check out the recipe at The cake has a nice, firm consistency yet is lighter than a regular pound cake and uses dessicated coconut, not that sticky, gooey manufactured stuff that is usually dumped in coconut cakes. It baked up beautifully - I used a 7-inch square pan, with 3-inch high sides (could not find my loaf pan); it turned out to be a perfect fit and the cake baked in an hour. The group at work really enjoyed it - a nice cake for a hot day, sprinkled with confectioners' sugar. I am planning to use this recipe again for a wedding cake and for petit fours.
