Here’s the recipe for the COCONUT PECAN POUND CAKE...definitely not a health food, but worth every calorie! It's one of my most requested homemade Christmas presents, and so easy to make...

BATTER
4 eggs
2 cups sugar
2 sticks/1 cup unsalted butter 
3 cups flour
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup flaked coconut, unsweetened
1 cup chopped pecans

GLAZE
½ cup water
2 tbsp salted butter
1 cup sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a large bowl, combine eggs, sugar and butter and beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, approximately 3 minutes. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl. Add dry ingredients alternately with buttermilk in three parts to batter and mix gently until just moistened. Stir in coconut and pecans. Pour batter into a pound cake mold. Bake for 60 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

Five minutes before cake is finished baking, make the glaze. Combine water, butter and sugar in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook for 5 minutes. Slowly pour half the syrup over the cake, invert onto serving plate, and pour remaining syrup over top. Dust with powdered sugar, let sit for 10 minutes, and eat warm!
