19 007Good Morning everyone today is Potluck Sunday, I hope you prepared a wonderful dish to bring. I am really hungry and cant wait to see what everyone has contributed.

 I’m a girl with a weakness for sweets, so today I am bringing a Homemade Coconut Pound Cake to the potluck.

I adapted this recipe from the Homemade Vanilla Pound Cake that I made a couple months back. While I was preparing the original pound cake recipe all sorts of different versions were popping into my head Lemon, Chocolate and Coconut.

I thought maybe if i played around a bit with the ingredients I could come up with a few different pound cake recipes. Coconut was the first one I wanted to try.

I was a little nervous messing with the original recipe because it was so good just as it was.
Well, I am happy to say the Coconut Pound Cake turned out fabulous. I am so glad I gave it a try now I have another great pound cake recipe.
In my opinion pound cakes are so much better the second day. I guess it is because the flavors have time to sit and marry.
Personally I can never wait till then to whack off a slice. That’s because I have absolutely no will power LOL. I hope you enjoy the recipe.
