Orange Coconut Pound Cake


Orange Coconut Pound Cake
Recipe By: Bahar

Main Ingredients:

All-purpose Flour: 1.5 cups
Salt: 1/8 tsp
Baking Powder: 1/4 tsp
Butter: 1/2 cup
Sugar: 1 cup*
Eggs: 3 (preferably room temperature)
Vanilla Extract: 1/2 tsp (or equivalently, 1/2 tsp vanilla powder)
Orange: zest of 1, grated
Orange Juice: 1/4 cup (preferably fresh)
Milk: 1/4 cup
Flaked Coconut: 1/2 cup


Directions:

1. Grease and flour one 8 or 9 inch tube pan (you may also use a 9x5 inch loaf pan).

2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

3. Sift the flour, salt, baking powder, and vanilla powder (if you are using powder instead of extract) together, set aside.

4. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy (for 5 to 10 minutes).

5. Mix in the eggs, one at time and beating well after each addition.

6. Stir in the vanilla extract (if you are using the extract). Add orange zest and juice and mix well.

7. Gently mix in flour mixture alternately with the milk, starting and ending with the flour mixture (either use whisk or set the beater on low).

8. Add flaked coconut and beat for about 1 minute.

9. Pour batter into the prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven for about 60 minutes or until the toothpick inserted comes out clean (do not open the oven door until after 45 minutes). Let cool in pan for 10 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.



* Depending on your taste, you may want to increase the sugar to 1+1/2 cups. If you are using sweetened flaked coconut, do not use more than 1+1/4 cups of sugar.

Friend, Guest2007 Dec 05
It would have been nice if you had some pictures of the different stages of the game. When I added the orange juice the texture changed so much that I got scared, but the cake came out well.

The cake was delicious but it was a little bit hot!
