Wonderful cake. I used milk and a teaspoon of rum extract instead of bourbon. This would be great with Rumchata too. I put a pan of water in the oven next to the cake to help keep it moist.
This cake is fantastic! We added a teaspoon or two of bourbon to the icing as well. Be sure to watch the cake towards the end of the cooking time as well as to not over bake.

does anyone have the frosting to the coconut cream cheese pound cake. i have searched everywhere, thanks
I made this cake for Christmas and I received rave reviews. I love the combination of pecans and coconut. What could be better?
Oh my goodness!!!!! I have been looking for this recipe for years. I made this cake 3 years ago for Christmas and everyone loved it. It was Fantastic. The density, texture, and flavor were all to our liking. This was the first cake I had ever made from scratch and everyone was impressed. The icing was a fabulous presentation. I did add some extra pecans and coconut on top. I am excited about making this cake again for Christmas!!
Just made this cake, and was especially wary of the dryness issues mentioned. The key: Coarsely chop the pecans (see photo). If you chop the pecans too much, they become powdery and soak up the moisture from the cake. I chopped mine too much... but still, the taste is wonderful, and with coffee, it's still delicious. But DO make coffee :)
Wonderful cake - easy to fix
Best pound cake you'll ever put in your mouth. Truly wonderful and very EASY to make!
This is the driest cake - it crumbles when you cut it -it is so dry - I was so disappointed. The icing hardened and flaked off of the cake. It would be better to split the batter between two bundt pans and double the icing to make two smaller cakes. The flavor is good but I now wonder if anyone tests the recipes before they are published.
Made this cake as written and garnished the serving platter with rosemary and dried cranberries. The baking time seems off... I thought the cake was a little dry and I took it out after 1 hour 15 minutes. Will make again and will check the cake after 45 minutes. Thank you. It looked beautiful.
I made this cake for an office Christmas party and received outstanding reviews from the entire office. Unlike some other reviews, I loved the consistency and it was not too much flour. My partner loved it so much that she asked for me to make it again this Christmas. I think it will probably become a Christmas standard in my house.
