Coconut Pound Cake

This is faster than making my favorite coconut cupcakes, but just as good for curing those coconut cravings.
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
2½ cups granulated sugar
Cream the butter and sugar until fluffy.
6 eggs
Add eggs one at a time and then add extracts.
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
½ teaspoon coconut extract
Combine salt and flour.
3 cups cake flour
½ teaspoon salt
Add dry ingredients alternately with coconut milk.
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
Stir in coconut.
2 cups packed flaked coconut

2 tablespoon butter
1¾ cup confectioners’ sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ cup coconut milk
Bake in greased 12 cup Bundt pan at 350˚ for 70 minutes. If using two baby Bundts: bake 48 minutes.  Cool five minutes in pan. Top with glaze.

It is ragingly hot in Texas, home of the Barbie Nation, so this is Annette's choice for Easter Sunday.  She is all set as long as she remembers that Sunday follows Saturday. Fortunately, things are very slow at work, so she hasn't had to worry about her lack of typing skills.  I'm sure she'll have several invitations for Eater dinner before the week is out.
