Coconut Cream Cheese Pound Cake

Happy Blue Monday ! Yes, as a matter of fact, this is my breakfast... We had another birthday weekend...My daughter adores Hello Kitty and I went to Michaels and could not find a Hello Kitty cake pan... so I had to come up with plan B. That's what I get for waiting until the last minute !

The good news is this pound cake is delicious ! And even better for 'breakfast' the next morning with a cup of hot coffee !! Maybe my Foodie Friday friends like coconut !


1/2 cup butter or 1/2 cup margarine, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
3 cups sugar
6 eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 (6 ounce) packages frozen coconut, thawed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon coconut extract

1 Cream the butter, shortening, and cream cheese together in a bowl.

2 Gradually add sugar, beating well at medium speed.

3 Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition.

4 In another bowl, combine flour, soda, and salt.

5 Add to creamed mixture, stirring just until blended.

6 Stir in coconut and remaining ingredients.

7 Pour batter into a greased and floured 10-inch tube pan.

8 Bake in a 325° oven for 1 1/2 hours or until a picks tests clean.

9 Cool in pan for 10-15 minutes.

10 Turn out of pan and cool completely on a wire rack

Great save with the "Hello Kitty"! Sounds yummy -- but my husband doesn't like coconut -- and well -- I guess that would just leave me to eat the whole cake!
