Coconut Pound Cake

Coconut Pound Cake is really a traditional tea cake.  And if you are thinking, ‘Well WTF is a tea cake as opposed to a normal cakey cake?’ – well I’ll tell you.  A tea cake is a light cake that doesn’t necessarily require icing, but is just as good with a smear of butter instead.  Remember like Grandma used to serve cake to you as a child? This cake is just like that – it has a very light coconut icing – but meh – you don’t even NEED it at all.
