MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 3, 2013

This is one of my favorite pound cake recipes. It always turns out great, and people love it! It is perfect for a dessert buffet, especially around holiday time as an alternative to pumpkin and cranberry desserts. The combination of coconut and pecans is scrumptious!
