SOUR CREAM POUND CAKE BATTER WITH COCONUT

  • after you have alternated the eggs and flour into the the batter and its mixed add your coconut extract and vailla
  • If you want to add coconut flakes fold them in with a spatula.

TIPS FOR THE PERFECT BUNDT CAKE

  1. I have honestly had the best luck with removing a bundt cake from a pan with buying non-stick bundt pans. I still will spray a nonstick spray or butter/flour the inside.
  2. Fill the bundt pan only 3/4 full. If you have leftover batter you can put it in a loaf pan!
  3. To help make sure there are no air bubbles and help it rise evenly spoon the batter in and after its settled pat the bottom of the pan on the counter a few times to encourage the bubbles to rise to the top.

BAKE YOUR COCONUT SOUR CREAM POUND CAKE

Place your bundt pan into the oven for about 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes. The top will be golden brown.

HOW TO REMOVE BUNDT CAKE

  1. Remove from the oven, and let cool for 15 minutes.
  2. Run a knife around the edges.
  3. let cool completely

HOW TO MAKE COCONUT GLAZE

Mix powder sugar, vanilla, coconut and milk until smooth.

Slowly drizzle the glaze all over that beautiful cake!

And just keep going util its covered.

DO I HAVE TO MAKE THIS INTO A BUNDT CAKE? OR CAN I USE ANOTHER PAN?

You can use a couple of loaf pans, or even a 9×13 to bake this coconut pound cake. Just keep an eye on the cooking time. My loaf pan still took about an hour to bake. A 9×13 would probably take a little less.

HOW DO I STORE COCONUT POUND CAKE?

Store leftovers in an air tight container. You don’t need to refrigerate it, but can to help it keep longer. It can sit on the counter for a couple of days, in the fridge for 1-2 weeks.

I DONT LIKE COCONUT CAN I LEAVE THAT OUT?

YES! The base of this recipe is the most delicious sour cream pound cake Just leave out the coconut extract and coconut flakes. No need to substitute anything.
