Cream Cheese and Coconut Pound Cake

June 18, 2013

A Happy Spirit

I was listening to some beautiful gospel music and it put me in the mood to dance and praise the Lord.  I wanted to do some baking for a few elderly groups for one of my favourite charities. I love cooking for the elderly and learning new tips.  They are the hardest critics.  Anyone that can make cou cou from scratch with a wooden stick is one to be feared.  I practiced my cake making with a cream cheese and coconut pound cake.  It was a great bake and was the perfect consistency and texture.  I flavoured it with coconut and vanilla and topped it with fresh raspberries.
