How to Make Lemon / Coconut Loaf Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degree F.

    Spray a 9 x 5 bread pan with nonstick cooking spray ( I use bakers secret ) Set aside.
  2. I used my kitchen aid mixer( you can use a hand mixer, just make sure you beat well), on medium speed, beat butter till fluffy. Add sugar and beat well, about 2 minutes.
  3. Add 1 egg at a time beating well after each addition.
  4. In a small bowl, blend flour, soda and salt.

    Begin adding the flour mixture to the wet mixture; alternating with sour cream. Ending with flour mixture.
  5. Fold in the zest, coconut, food coloring and lemon extract.
  6. Spread batter evenly into prepared bread pan.

    Bake for 1 hour and 5 - 10 minutes or until pick inserted in the center comes out clean.

    Cool in pan for 10 minutes, then remove and finish cooking on wire rack.
  7. Make glaze if using:

    Whisk the sugar,lemon juice and milk; until desired consistency occurs. May need more cream.

    I then spread the glaze over the cooled cake and sprinkled with more coconut.
