Coconut Pound Cake

If you like cake and desserts, this coconut pound cake is like a dream come true!  This is a wonderful cake to serve anytime and I promise it won’t last long.

Coconut pound cake is delicious and great for any occasion or event.

1 box Pillsbury Moist Supreme Classic Yellow Cake Mix
1 (3.4 ounce) box vanilla instant pudding and pie filling
4 large eggs
1 cup evaporated milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup coconut
1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
Combine dry cake mix, pudding, eggs, vanilla,  milk and oil in a large mixing bowl.  Beat at medium speed until well mixed.  Fold in coconut.  Pour into well sprayed bundt pan (could use 9 x 13 or round pans).  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven 45 to 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Cool in pan 25 minutes before removing to serving dish.
Coconut Frosting
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup evaporated milk
1/2 stick butter or margarine
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
1 cup coconut
Walnuts (can use whatever nuts you prefer)                 
Bring sugar, milk, butter, and  egg to boil on top of the stove.  Add vanilla and coconut and cook until of spreading consistency.  (I would double this recipe for frosting if you are doing an entire cake and not just the top). Spread on cake or drizzle over top.  Add nuts.  Enjoy!

  1. On the frosting. Do I have to incorporate the ingredients before put them to boil?

  2. I love coconut but cant eat the eggs in the icing, can you do this with out the eggs in the icing?

  3. I tried your cake but, my icing didn’t seem to be thick enough to spread. Is the icing suppose to be thick or just put on top of a bundt cake? thanks

    • The Southern Lady says:

      Maybe, you didn’t cook it long enough. I usually just put on top of a bundt cake or spread on a 9 x 13 cake. I don’t know if it would stick to a layer cake that well.

  4. Jim Voorhies says:

    Sounds really good, just would add some pinapple to make it great!!!!

  5. I just made this cake and it is wonderful! We ate some of it without the icing!

  6. This cake looks delish…I love anything with coconut in it. I loved your little cupcakes for Tater Tot. I’ll bet he ate one or two..and grandma too.
    Hope your Easter day was nice..Balisha
