Recipe Coconut Lime Pound Cake

School is here! 
This recipe for coconut lime pound cake is the perfect gift for teachers to transition them from Summer to Fall.  
Happy baking!

Pound Cake:
3 large eggs
3 tablespoons of whole milk
1 tablespoon of coconut milk
1 1/2 tablespoons of coconut extract
1 1/2 cups of sifted cake flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
3/4 cups of sugar
1 cup of room temperature salted butter

Zest of 1 lime
3 tablespoons of fresh lime juice
1 cup of powdered sugar
1 teaspoon of butter
1 cup of sweetened coconut

Instructions for cake:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cream the butter and sugar, add eggs one at a time mixing well after each addition.  Add the extract, zest, juice and milks.
Slowly add the flour, salt, and baking powder.  Mix until just combined.  Spray a loaf pan with your favorite non-stick spray and add the mix. 

Bake for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Instructions for glaze:
The the cake is cooled, mix all ingredients except for the coconut until smooth.  Glaze should be rather thick.  Spread all over top of the cake and while the glaze is wet, sprinkle the coconut on top and enjoy!
